On Wednesday (May 11), Casanova pleaded guilty to federal drug and racketeering charges, admitting to participating in an August 2018 robbery in New York City and July 2020 shooting in Florida.
According to the New York Daily News, the Brooklyn rapper also admitted to conspiring to traffic marijuana while leading the Untouchable Gorilla Stone Nation Bloods gang.
The guilty plea comes more than a year after Casanova, born Caswell Senior, and 17 others were indicted on federal gang charges. He surrendered to authorities in late 2020.
Now the 13th person indicted in the case to enter a guilty plea, prosecutors allege Casanova, 35, led the Untouchable Gorilla Stone Nation Bloods gang and directed a conspiracy that spanned from the east coast to Florida.
“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,” U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said.
Casanova faces 60 years in federal prison, with a mandatory minimum term of five years. He is scheduled to be sentenced on December 6.
