The 51-year-old musician entered guilty pleas on two counts of assault in the fourth degree, two counts of menacing, one count of unlawful use of a weapon and one count of coercion.

If Castronovo violates his probation, he stands to serve as much as five years and five months in prison. Judge Jamese Rhoades also ordered Deen to undergo counseling for drug abuse and domestic violence.

Deen initially was arrested in June and charged with fourth-degree assault and menacing after police were called to his house following an incident in which he allegedly assaulted a woman. Castronovo was subsequently released on bond, but was arrested again later that month on additional charges after new information emerged with regard to his alleged harassment of the same woman.

At the time of Castronovo’s arraignment on June 30, his lawyer admitted that Deen was struggling with drug addiction and also was suicidal, while also maintaining he’d frequently given back to the local community, including making a charitable donation to a local high school’s music program.

After Castronovo’s arrest, Journey announced that acclaimed drummer Omar Hakim would be filling in for him at their concerts. No word yet if or when Deen will be rejoining Journey.
