Nfter an armed robbery in which the dog sitter of US pop star Lady Gaga (36) was shot, one of the perpetrators has to go to prison for a long time. The 20-year-old was sentenced to 21 years in prison, US media reported on Monday. The man committed a “cold-hearted, violent act,” the Los Angeles Times quoted as saying from a statement from the Los Angeles public prosecutor’s office. According to authorities, the perpetrator pleaded guilty to attempted murder.
The nightly mugging made headlines in February 2021. “Dogwalker” Ryan Fischer was walking the singer’s three French bulldogs in Hollywood when men jumped out of a car and demanded the animals be handed over at gunpoint.
The dog sitter fought back and was seriously injured by a gunshot. The thieves escaped with two dogs. The robbery happened during Lady Gaga’s visit to Italy while she was filming. The two dogs were handed over to a police station two days later.
The incident led to several arrests, some procedures are still pending. In August, two men were sentenced to four and six years in prison, respectively, for taking part in the robbery.
