An Atlanta man who held a woman against her will at a Fayetteville home entered a guilty plea Monday to false imprisonment, officials said.

Bishop H. Perry, 34, was sentenced to seven years in prison by Superior Court Judge Paschal A. English Jr.

The incident occurred at a residence on Wynchase Lane July 5. Perry was accused of forcing the woman upstairs and making her remove her clothes to prevent her from escaping, according to arrest warrants in the case.

Perry, of Peachtree Road, Atlanta, had previous convictions in Fulton County for aggravated stalking, simple battery and false imprisonment, according to court documents. He was accused in the Fayetteville case of violating a temporary protective order five times by contacting the victim by phone.

Prosecutors dropped the five related counts of aggravated stalking related to the phone calls and also one count of kidnapping in exchange for the guilty plea.

In other court action, another Atlanta man pled guilty to selling cocaine to an undercover officer.

Antonio Deion McCoy admitted to selling 2 grams of crack cocaine to an officer with the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office Drug Task Force for $250 March 25. The incident occurred at a location on Ga. Highway 85 North.

McCoy was sentenced to 15 years in prison. He had two prior charges of cocaine possession, once in 1998 and another in 2002, both in Fulton County, according to court records.

McCoy also pled guilty to possession of cocaine.
