Man Who Stole Lady Gaga’s Dogs To Spend 21 Years Behind Bars

James Howard Jackson, who kidnapped two of Lady Gaga’s dogs and killed her dogwalker, received a 21-year jail term.
He was among the persons engaged in the robbery and shooting that happened last year close to Sunset Boulevard.
The District Attorney’s Office for Los Angeles County reports that Jackson has admitted to being convicted of one count of attempted murder.
The dognapper, according to ET Online, received a 21-year prison term after being charged with attempted murder, robbery conspiracy, and assault with a semi-automatic weapon.
On February 24, 2021, Jackson and two other people (Jaylin White and Lafayette Whaley) were driving towards West Hollywood and the San Fernando Valley in search of French bulldogs to kidnap when they saw Ryan Fischer, Lady Gaga’s dogwalker, with three of the singer’s canines.
Jackson, the main offender, shot Fischer during the heist, resulting in the loss of two of the dogs. The cops later discovered the third dog, which had fled.
Fischer’s screams were captured on a neighboring doorbell camera, “Oh my God! I’ve been shot! Help me!” and “I’m bleeding out from my chest!”
It was learned that the tragic occurrence caused the dogwalker’s lungs to suffer damage, necessitating surgery and hospitalization.
The connection to Lady Gaga was only coincidental, according to the authorities, and the French Bulldogs, a breed with a high economic value, were the intended victims. The investigators don’t think the burglars were aware that the musician owned the canines.
After the pop artist announced a $500,000 prize, a lady named Jennifer McBride came forward to report discovering the dogs; however, it was subsequently revealed that she was connected to one of the offenders, and she was charged with being an accomplice to the crime.
