Daily Mail A man has been handed a ten year sentence for handcuffing himself to a colleague in a desperate attempt to get a date. Jason Earl Dean, 25, attached himself to his 18-year-old co-worker at a Taco Bell as she left their workplace, after trying to get her attention for a month. Mr Dean waited outside the fast-food restaurant until the woman finished her shift at 9pm and handcuffed himself to her as she tried to get into her car. He fled after fellow staff at the fast-food restaurant in Ringgold, Georgia, heard her screaming and came to her rescue. According to the 18-year-old, Mr Dean had been ‘making passes’ at her for a month before the August 2011 incident, trying to convince her to go out with him, Catoosa News reported. Mr Dean was on the run for two days before police arrested him in nearby Dalton. Mr Dean entered a blind guilty plea for the charge of false imprisonment and was sentenced to four years in jail and six year on probation by a judge at Catoosa County Superior Court. He has also been ordered not to have any contact with the victim or her family. ‘It’s a split sentence,’ Lookout Mountain assistant district attorney Alan 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.’
Total power move by James Earl Dean, and one that I bet has worked for guys in the past, except this time it blew up in his face. This girl clearly had no interest in him, however there are freaky chicks out there who would think that this aggressive move is hot, and would be into it. That’s why I think, although the handcuffs were a terrible idea, a four year sentence followed by six years probation is a little harsh.
Either that or this crazy psycho really was going to abduct and Jill his coworker, in that case, lock his add up and throw away the key.
