Lady Gaga’s dog walker was shot and robbed by a man charged with the crime.
Authorities said that one of the people charged in the shooting and robbery of Lady Gaga’s dog walker in Los Angeles was sentenced to four years in prison Wednesday.
Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office revealed that Jaylin White pleaded no contest to a charge of second-degree robbery and admitted that one of the group members was armed.
According to Greg Risling, spokesman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, other charges and allegations filed against White were dismissed.
Reports indicate that he was previously charged with attempted murder and conspiracy to commit robbery. In addition, a dramatic surveillance video captured the shooting and dognapping of Ryan Fischer on February 24, during which two men accosted Fischer while he walked the star’s three dogs.
After that, a fight broke out. As one attacker appears to point a gun at the victim, another seems to restrain him. Then, there is a gunshot, and the victim falls backward as the assailants rush back to their vehicle. Gunfire severely injured Fischer, but he survived.
In connection with the shooting and robbery, White and four other individuals were arrested weeks later. Among them were two people facing accessory after the fact charges.
James Jackson, one of the suspects, was mistakenly released from police custody in April after “a clerical error.” There are charges against Jackson for attempted murder. The case still involves a third suspect who remains on the run.
A slew of law enforcement agencies, notably the United States Marshals Service, were seeking Jackson. According to the LA County Sheriff’s Department, he was captured on Wednesday.
