NEW YORK (WABC) -- Rapper Casanova, whose real name is Caswell Senior, pleaded guilty Wednesday to racketeering and narcotics offenses arising out of his leadership role in the Untouchable Gorilla Stone Nation Bloods Gang in Westchester County, New York City, and Florida.

The 35-year-old Senior, of Montville, New Jersey, is the 13th defendant in the Gorilla Stone case to plead guilty.
