Rapper Casanova Has Been Charged With Attempted Murder

Rapper Casanova was arrested on federal charges in 2020, accused by the Department Of Justice of leading a series of violent crimes — including the murder of a 15-year-old in Poughkeepsie — with a gang called Untouchable Gorilla Stone Nation.

Ever since, Casanova, born Caswell Senior, has been in held in a Westchester County Jail, facing firearm possession, conspiracy to distribute substances, and unemployment fraud charges.

Now, the New York rapper has reportedly been charged with attempted murder. The incident reportedly dates back to October 24, 2020, in Miami, when Casanova was standing in front of a strip club called King Of Diamonds. There, he allegedly got into an argument with a member of a rival gang, who accused him of flashing the wrong hand signals while taking photos with fans.

Casanova allegedly replied, “You want to die tonight?” The gang member and another person were subsequently shot in the stomach by an associate of Casanova’s named Jarrett “Jayecee” Chrisler Jr.

Prosecutors later seized Chrisler’s phone, where they found text messages of him boasting about the incident to another associate. Both Casanova and Chrisler have been charged with attempted murder and assault with a dangerous weapon in aid of racketeering.

The indictment, handed down by a grand jury, also charges Casanova and a co-defendant named DeShawn “Don” Thomas for another, unrelated violent incident taking place on July 5th, 2020.




If convicted, Casanova faces a minimum of 15 years in prison and a maximum of life. He recently sent a message from behind bars saying “this jail shit ain’t gangsta at all.”
