SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Journey drummer Deen Castronovo will have to wear an ankle monitoring device and go directly to drug treatment when he is released from jail as he awaits trial on rape and other felony charges.
KATU-TV reports ( http://bit.ly/1RpgLli ) that Marion County Judge Thomas Hart issued the stipulations for Castronovo at a court hearing Friday.
Castronovo, 50, was arrested June 14 on misdemeanor assault and menacing, then released on bail and ordered not to contact the alleged victim. A grand jury later returned more serious charges, including rape.
Castronovo was jailed again after authorities said he called and texted the woman with messages that included suicide threats and apologies.
In court on Friday, Castronovo blamed drug addiction for his actions.
The judge set bail at $200,000. Castronovo’s attorney expects him to remain in treatment until his trial in October.
