In addition, as part of the no-contest plea, which is the legal equivalent of pleading guilty in the state of California, James Howard Jackson admitted in court to inflicting great bodily injury on Ryan Fischer, the man who survived the attack despite being shot in the chest by Jackson. Fischer was shot in the chest during the assault.

The statement made by the District Attorney’s Office of Los Angeles County when they announced the settlement of the case read as follows: “The plea agreement holds Mr. Jackson accountable for perpetrating a cold-hearted, violent act and provides justice for our victim.”
According to the Los Angeles City News Service, the plea deal resulted in the dismissal of several of the other charges that Jackson was facing (CNS).
Fischer was present in court on Monday and made a statement, which was reported by CNS, in which he blasted the defendant and claimed that the gunshot had irrevocably changed the course of his life.
Jackson was one of five suspects arrested in connection with the shooting of Gaga’s dog walker and the abduction of her two pets on February 24, 2021. The authorities identified four of the suspects as known members of street gangs, and Jackson was one of the suspects who was arrested.
Two days after being snatched at gunpoint from a musician’s home by two strangers in a car, the two bulldogs that were taken, named Koji and Gustav, were handed over to the musician’s representatives at a police station where they had been abandoned unharmed.
A third bulldog that belonged to Gaga ran away while Fischer was taking him for a walk, but the authorities tracked him down and found him safe and sound later.
The evidence, according to the police at the time, suggested that the suspects singled out the three dogs because of the high value that was placed on the breed; however, it was believed that the suspects did not know the identity of the owner prior to the robbery.
Gaga, who had been filming a movie in Rome at the time when her pets were taken, had issued a public plea on social media for an “act of kindness” to bring them home, and she offered a reward of $500,000 for their safe return.

Jennifer McBride, the woman who came forward to report finding the dogs and turning them over to the police, was later charged with being an accessory after the fact. She was the one who turned the dogs over to the authorities. According to the district attorney’s office, nothing has been decided about her case as of Monday.
Another co-defendant, Harold White, entered a plea of no guilty to a weapons allegation on Monday. According to the prosecutors, White will be punished in the following year.
