Journey drummer Deen Castronova faces four years of probation after entering a guilty plea on charges of assault and menacing constituting domestic violence in Salem, Oregon. The charges stemmed from an incident that also involved a weapon and coercion. The drummer's terms of probation reportedly ban him from being involved romantically without clearance from a probation officer and restricts him from contact with the victim, alcohol or controlled substance use and entering a drinking establishment except for purposes of performing. A violation of any terms of the probation could result in a jail sentence of five years. Journey replaced Castronova with drummer Omar Hakim not long after his legal troubles developed.
