Casanova pleads guilty racketeering conspiracy, drug charges, as the Roc Nation rapper of Brooklyn avoids the maximum penalty in prison. Today, Caswell Senior, known by the public as Casanova, has pleaded out to charges presented by the FEDs.
Mr. Senior admitted to shooting someone at a party in Florida during a gambling dispute in 2020. He also pleaded to a Manhattan robbery, in which a member of his entourage choked a woman unconscious for taking a photo of him in 2018.
Lastly, he copped to racketeering and narcotics charges in the U.S. District Court of White Plains, in a conspiracy to move more than 100 kilograms of weed. The Untouchable Gorilla Stone Nation were arrested during the infamous December 20202 indictment sweep of more than 17 accused members.
Manhattan U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said “Like 12 of his co-defendants, Caswell Senior, an accomplished recording artist and performer, now stands convicted of playing a leadership role in Gorilla Stone, a particularly violent Bloods gang that operates throughout New York and across the country. In addition to his supervisory role, Senior was an active, hands-on participant in the gang’s senseless violence.”
What brought all eyes on the UGSN bloods faction, was the murder of a 15-year-old boy during September 2020. One of the alleged members, Brandon ‘Stacks” Soto was accused of driving an accomplice to Poughkeepsie to assassinate the teenager.
This investigation had been ongoing from 2004 through late 2020, as the Gorilla Stones were linked to several high-profile shootings and robberies through Brooklyn and Westchester County.
Casanova faces a maximum penalty of 60 years under federal guidelines, as he’ll face sentencing in December. Considering his pleading out and saving tax dollars, we’re sure he won’t face entire sentencing.
