Jason Earl Dean, 25, of Dalton, made national headlines in August 2011 after he handcuffed himself to an 18-year-old woman, a co-worker at the Taco Bell in Ringgold, in an attempt to convince her to go on a date with him.
Judge Ralph Van Pelt on Jan. 7 sentenced Dean to four years in jail, followed by six years on probation, said Lookout Mountain assistant district attorney Alan Norton.
“It's a split sentence,” Norton said. “Four years is to be served in the department of corrections, while the remainder is to be served on probation with specific conditions.”
Also, Dean is not to have any contact with the victim or her family, Norton said.
