Brooklyn rapper Casanova is facing multiple new charges in the federal case against alleged members of the “Untouchable Gorilla Stone Nation,” a superseding indictment viewed by Pitchfork confirms. The grand jury charged Casanova, whose real name is Caswell Senior, with attempted murder and assault with a dangerous weapon in aid of racketeering. He’s also facing new assault and weapons charges in addition to previous charges of racketeering conspiracy and narcotics conspiracy.
The superseding indictment states that “on or about October 24, 2020, in the Southern District of Florida, Southern District of New York, and elsewhere,” Casanova and Jayecee (real name: Jarrett Crisler, Jr.) “knowingly attempted to murder an individual and assaulted that individual with a dangerous weapon” and “shot at a rival gang member in Miami, Florida.”
“Mr. Senior has been and will continue asserting his innocence on these and all charges,” Casanova’s attorney James Kousouros said in a statement to Pitchfork.
