Last month, Brooklyn's Casanova surrendered himself to the authorities on racketeering-related charges. On Thursday (Jan. 28), Manhatten Federal Judge Philip Halpern ruled based on Cas' past criminal history and evidence in his ongoing case, that letting him out until trial is too much of a risk. According to New York Daily News, the judge reportedly argued that the rapper could be a "danger to the community," and therefore denied him bail.
Judge Halpern reported continued, "The fact that violence seems to be perpetuated by associates of Mr. Senior ... it’s plausible to interpret that as evidence ... Mr. Senior doesn’t have to get his hands dirty."
Assistant U.S. Attorney David Felton argued that Casanova, born Caswell Senior, "is a full-fledged, committed leader of the gang," also mentioning that there is "rampant evidence of guns, drugs, and violence centrally involving this defendant."
