Lady Gaga got justice for her dog and dog walker.
The man who last year shot Lady Gaga's dog walker and stole her French canines accepted a plea agreement and was given a 21-year prison term.
According to investigators, the Lady Gaga connection was a coincidence. Detectives don't think the thieves were aware the dogs belonged to the musician; instead, they believe they were motivated by the French bulldogs' high value as a breed, which can reach thousands of dollars.
According to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office, James Howard Jackson, one of the three men and two accomplices who took part in the brutal robbery, entered a no-contest plea to one count of attempted murder.
On February 24, 2021, Jackson and others drove throughout Hollywood, West Hollywood, and the San Fernando Valley "searching for French bulldogs."
They discovered Ryan Fischer, Lady Gaga's dog walker, and her three pets.
During the robbery, Fischer was shot by Jackson.
According to the DA's office, Jackson acknowledged the charge of causing great bodily harm and a prior strike. He received a 21-year prison term.
"The plea agreement holds Mr. Jackson accountable for perpetrating a cold-hearted violent act and provides justice for our victim," the office said in a statement.
