James Howard Jackson, one of the guys accused of the heinous act of shooting Lady Gaga’s dog walker Ryan Fischer and kidnapping her bulldogs, reportedly received a 21-year state prison sentence. According to numerous reports, the 20-year-old accepted a plea deal and really entered a plea of not guilty to the charges of robbery and attempted murder.
Ryan Fischer, Lady Gaga’s dog walker, was shot in the chest by three assailants while out for a normal walk with the singer’s three French bulldogs on February 24, 2021. The three then took Koji and Gustav, two of the singer’s dogs, for ransom and left the area. The incident happened on a Los Angeles street. According to reports, two of the men choked and punched Fischer, and despite his efforts to resist the attackers, he was shot and badly injured.
The singer’s dog walker underwent surgery on his lungs to correct the damage brought on by the shooting, in addition to spending several days in the ICU. According to reports, Jennifer McBride, who is now an accessory to the crime, returned her missing canines after the A Star is Born actress offered a $500,000 bounty.People claim that Fischer showed up in court on Monday.
During the sentencing, he spoke to Jackson and asserted, “You shot me and left me to die, and both of our lives have changed forever.” He added “I do forgive you. With the attack, you completely altered my life. I know I can’t completely move on from the night you shot me until I said those words to you.
Fischer also posted an emotional post with the caption, “Today was an emotional one, and it’s been a long journey to get to here,’ with the caption “I’ll comment more in the coming days, but here is the impact statement I gave in court to the man who shot me. Thank you to everyone who has supported me along the road that helped me reach this point. You really have carried me through the darkest times to find the light again.”
