RINGGOLD, Ga. (January 10, 2013)—Jason Earl Dean, 25, of Dalton, Ga., who handcuffed himself to a female Taco Bell co-worker, has been sentenced to serve four years in prison.
Dean handcuffed himself to the 18-year-old woman in August 2011 in an attempt to convince her to go on a date with him.
Lookout Mountain Assistant District Attorney Alan Norton says a Catoosa County Superior Court judge sentenced Dean to four years in prison followed by six years on probation.
Dean had been charged with false imprisonment.
Norton says Dean is also not allowed to have any contact with the victim or her family.
