Actress Rose McGowan indicted on cocaine charge in Virginia

Actress Rose McGowan indicted on cocaine charge in Virginia”

McGowan pleaded not guilty to the charge, as she claims she had been without the wallet for five hours before getting it back, meaning anyone could have planted the drugs in the wallet.

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority obtained the warrant in February past year after authorities allegedly found traces of narcotics in her personal belongings that were left behind on a United flight in January to Washington, D.C. On Tuesday, her trial in Loudoun County Circuit Court was set for January 15.

Last month, it was ruled the case would be heard at trial by a grand jury, and on Monday, McGowan was indicted for one felony count of cocaine possession. If convicted, the 44-year-old could face up to 10 years in jail.

Rose McGowan attends the Vivienne Westwood show as part of the Paris Fashion Week Womenswear Fall/Winter 2018/2019 on March 3, 2018 in Paris, France. This is a warrant out of my arrest in Virginia. McGowan has maintained the cocaine isn't hers, and has suggested in court papers that the drugs were planted at the behest of movie producer Harvey Weinstein. The airport found two bags of cocaine inside.

According to TMZ, the former "Charmed" star's attorney Jose Baez said: "Rose steadfastly maintains her innocence".

'These charges would have never been brought if it weren't for her activism as a voice for women everywhere.

Weinstein pleaded not guilty to the sexual assault charges.
