Journey's Deen Castronovo Trial Date Set

(hennemusic) A trial date has been set for Journey drummer Deen Castronovo following a pair of arrests last month relating to an alleged domestic dispute in Salem, Oregon.

The Statesman Journal reports that Castronovo will appear before Marion County Circuit Judge Thomas Hart on October 22 at 9 a.m. for a two-day trial.

Castronovo was initially arrested on June 14 and charged with fourth-degree assault, coercion and menacing in the early morning incident. The drummer was released on $20,000 bail and was ordered to have no contact with the victim.

Following his June 15 release, according to Deputy District Attorney Jennifer Gardiner, Castronovo sent 122 text messages to the victim and called her 35 times.

The drummer was arrested on a grand jury indictment on June 29 that stated the alleged abuse took place between April 25 and June 29. Castronovo was arraigned June 30 on five counts of fourth-degree assault, one count of first-degree rape, two counts of menacing, one count of unlawful use of a weapon, one count of second-degree assault, one count of second-degree sex abuse, one count of coercion, one count of second-degree criminal mischief, and three counts of contempt of court, according to the indictment.

At a bail hearing July 1 details of the alleged domestic violence were revealed. Read more here.
