RINGGOLD, Georgia — A U.S. man who handcuffed himself to a female co-worker in an effort to get a date has been sentenced to four years in prison.

The Rome News-Tribune in Georgia reports that 25-year-old Jason Earl Dean handcuffed himself to the 18-year-old in August 2011. They worked together at a Taco Bell fast-food restaurant.

Dean had been charged with false imprisonment.

Lookout Mountain Assistant District Attorney Alan Norton says Dean is also not allowed to have any contact with the victim or her family.
