The FBI has announced a slew of charges against 18 members of the Untouchable Gorilla Stone Nation street gang today, one of which members is New York rapper Casanova.
Casanova, real name Caswell Senior, is being charged with conspiracy to commit racketeering, conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.
FBI Assistant Director William F. Sweeney released the following statement:
As the indictment alleges, the violence and drug activity committed by these gang members threatened the safety of our communities and placed innocent lives at risk. Their unabashed criminal behavior, as alleged, included the murder of a 15 year-old and even extended to defrauding programs meant for people suffering economic hardship due to the pandemic. But thanks to the partnership and hard work of all law enforcement agencies involved in this investigation, we were able to stop this violent criminal organization — and show that Gorilla Stone is actually not ‘untouchable.'”
If convicted, Casanova is facing a maximum sentence of life in prison.
