After taking a plea deal and admitting to shooting the dog walker, James Howard Jackson was sentenced to 21 years in prison yesterday. Clueless cops accidentally released the attempted murderer earlier this year, but they were eventually able to re-arrest him. Via The Guardian:
The man who shot Lady Gaga’s dog walker and stole her French bulldogs in Los Angeles last year has been sentenced to 21 years in prison for the high profile robbery that saw the star offer a $500,000 reward for the return of her pets.
James Howard Jackson, one of three men and two accomplices who participated in the violent robbery of dog walker Ryan Fischer, pleaded no contest to one count of attempted murder, the Los Angeles county district attorney’s office said on Monday.
