The Guy Who Shot Lady Gaga’s Dog Walker Got 21 Years
The man who shot Lady Gaga’s dog walker will have a long time to think about what he did . . . because he was just sentenced to 21 years in prison.
James Howard Jackson shot Ryan Fischer back in February of 2021, and stole Gaga’s French bulldogs Gustav and Koji.
Gaga offered a $500,000 reward, and the dogs were returned the next day after someone found them tied to a pole in an alley.
Fischer was in court to read a victim impact statement. He said, quote, “You shot me and left me to die, and both of our lives have changed forever.”
He added that his days since the attack have been marked by “lung collapse after lung collapse,” physical therapy and “loss of career, friendships, aimlessly traveling the country,” and rising debt.
