Casanova Pleads Guilty to Drug and Racketeering Charges
According to several confirmed reports, Brooklyn rapper Caswell “Casanova” Senior pleaded guilty to drug and racketeering charges today in a Brooklyn federal court. Senior confessed to several crimes as prosecutors claimed he was the Untouchable Gorilla Stone Nation Bloods gang leader.
Senior surrendered to the FBI at the end of 2020, with prosecutors alleging that the “Don’t Run” rapper directed a drug gang conspiracy from New York to Florida. The U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan says that Senior confessed to a shooting in Florida in 2020, a 2018 robbery in NYC, and trafficking more than 100 kilos of marijuana.
In December 2020, Casanova was the centerpiece of a federal investigation. He surrendered to the feds on racketeering charges. He was denied bail, despite his lawyers and family situating a $2.5 million bail package, but S. District Judge Phillip Halpern rejected his proposal.
Shortly after co-defendant Shantay Outlaw struck a deal with prosecutors, Senior was hit with an attempted murder charge for the 2020 shooting in Miami, to which he has now admitted guilt.
Casanova is set to be sentenced in federal court in December. He faces a minimum of five years in prison and a maximum of 60 years in prison.
His guilty plea comes within days of Young Thug, Gunna, and 26 other YSL members being indicted on RICO and additional street gangs/organized crime-related charges.
