RINGGOLD, Ga. —

A north Georgia man who handcuffed himself to a female Taco Bell co-worker has been sentenced to serve four years in prison.

The Rome News-Tribune ( http://bit.ly/U76lpZ) reports that 25-year-old Jason Earl Dean of Dalton 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.

The victim told police that Dean had been trying "go out" with her for approximately a month, and that when she walked out to her car at the end of her shift, he pulled up next to her and handcuffed himself to her as she attempted to get into her vehicle.

The victim said Dean did let her go when multiple co-workers approached them after hearing her scream out.

Norton says Dean is also not allowed to have any contact with the victim or her family.
