Actress Rose McGowan Indicted on Felony Drug Charge

Rose Mc Gowan speaks at the inaugural Women's Convention in Detroit. A grand jury in Virginia has indicted the actress on one felony count of cocaine possession. McGowan's trial date will be set Tuesday

News outlets report McGowan's trial was set on Tuesday, a day after she was indicted.

A grand jury in Virginia indicted actress and activist Rose McGowan Monday on one felony count of cocaine possession, according to online court records in Loudoun County, Virginia.

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority obtained the warrant in February a year ago 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.

If convicted, Rose can face up to a year in the slammer.

In a court filing last week, attorneys for McGowan argued that the five hours between the plane landing and the wallet being found make it impossible to prove the cocaine was hers.

McGowan's attorney Jim Hundley declined to comment.

The actress has maintained that the drugs in her wallet were “planted” by people associated with Harvey Weinstein

"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.

McGowan tweeted about incident, asking, "Are they trying to silence me?"

McGowan says she is being targeted because of her advocacy against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. This is a warrant out of my arrest in Virginia. Weinstein has denied all the accusations.

"There is simply no point in time at which the evidence places Ms McGowan and the cocaine together in the same place", said Ms Carmichael, who suggested Weinstein could have had the drugs planted.

Weinstein pleaded not guilty to the sexual assault charges.
