Gary Alan Coe, or "Gary from Chicago," was one of the tourists invited into the Dolby Theater Sunday but now his sex offender past is coming into question.
He was released from prison just days before the Oscars, after serving a reported 20 year sentence. His crimes include theft, burglary and attempted rape.
He says he found redemption behind bars where he met his fiancee Vickie Vines. Coe, 59, kissed the hands of some of the most famous women in the world including Nicole Kidman and Octavia Spencer.
