The man was accused of shooting lady gagaLast year’s dog walker just got a tough sentence for the crime… landing behind bars for decades.
James Howard Jackson He was sentenced Monday to 21 years in prison in Los Angeles County – this is after accepting a plea bargain from the District Attorney’s office. Jackson was one of five men taken away by police and accused of carrying out the attack violent action in 2021.
A representative for the Los Angeles County DA’s office tells us that Jackson has pledged no contest to a number of attempted murders and has admitted to an allegation of grievous bodily injury from a previous hit.
Prosecutors alleged that Jackson did in fact shoot Ryan Fisher That night in an attempt to steal Gaga’s two French bulldogs.
Video obtained by TMZ showed the wild altercation — the group literally rolled and jumped to attack Ryan, shooting him in the process.
Jackson was facing the most serious charges, attempted murder and two additional firearm counts, assault with a semi-automatic firearm and felon with a concealed firearm in a vehicle.
You will remember…it was actually It was temporarily released by mistake Earlier this year after a clerical error by the sheriff, Fisher told us at the time he was panicking, and was calling the police to quickly arrest him.
In the end, they did…and now, he’s been going away for the long haul. It is unclear where things stand with the other 4 men connected to the case… 2 more have also been charged with attempted murder, while the last 2 have been charged with accessory charges, among others.
Both dogs were returned to their rightful owner – and Ryan, fortunately, recovered.
