BREAKING: Authorities Fear Casanova May Take His Life In Jail
The Brooklyn rapper, born Caswell Senior, was charged with racketeering conspiracy, conspiracy to knowingly and intentionally manufacture, distribute, or dispense, or possess with intent to manufacture, distribute, or dispense, a controlled substance (crack cocaine, cocaine, and marijuana), and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.
Casanova initially pleaded guilty, maintained his innocence, and proclaimed he was being unfairly targeted because of his association with specific individuals and his stature as a famous rapper.
But today, Casanova admitted that he was the triggerman in a July 5th, 2020, shooting at a party in Florida with other gang members. The rapper shot a man over a gambling dispute.
The rap star also admitted to an August 5th, 2018, robbery in Manhattan that caused a woman serious bodily injury while she was being restrained. So far, the Feds have secured guilty pleas from Deshawn “Don” Thomas, Naya “Baby” Austin, Brandon “Untouchable Dot” Nieves, Donavan “Donnie Love” Gillard, Jarrett “Jayecee” Crisler, Dezon “Blakk” Washington, Stephen “Chino” Hugh, Jordan “Flow” Ingram, Shanay “Easy” Outlaw, Roberta “Trouble” Sligh, Brinae “Luxury” Thornton, and Jamal “Trap Smoke” Trent.
“Like twelve 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, including a shooting in Miami and contributing to a robbery at a Manhattan diner. Dismantling violent gangs and stopping gun violence continues to be one of my highest priorities. Thanks to the dedication of our partners at the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Senior now awaits sentencing for his dangerous conduct,” said U.S. Attorney Damian Williams.
