Rose McGowan Indicted On Drug Charge In Virginia

The former Charmed star was slapped with felony possession of a controlled substance a year ago after authorities reportedly found two packets of cocaine in a wallet she left behind on a flight to Washington Dulles International Airport in Virginia in January 2017.

A May cover story with The Hollywood Reporter included comment from McGowan about the fact she faced a maximum of 10 years in prison if convicted, while Weinstein remained free. Her trial will be set later on Tuesday.

In January 2017, the actress' wallet went missing while she was waiting at baggage claim. McGowan had flown in for the Women's March on Washington that day.

'These charges would have never been brought if it weren't for her activism as a voice for women everywhere. This is a warrant out of my arrest in Virginia. Police said two bags of cocaine were discovered inside.

She was voted female athlete of the year in a nationwide poll of sportswriters conducted by The Associated Press. However, her career was shortened by elbow problems, which she blamed on the heavy wooden rackets of the time.

McGowan has maintained the cocaine is not hers, suggesting in court papers that the drugs were planted at the behest of movie producer Harvey Weinstein.

"It is now public knowledge that Weinstein employed underhanded tactics to "silence" his victims". "I assure you, this selective prosecution will be met with a strong defense".

In November, The New Yorker revealed that Weinstein had hired an ex-Israeli intelligence officer to monitor his accusers and journalists close to the story.

Rose has pleaded not guilty to the case, and states that she was without the wallet for five hours before she retrieved it.
