Hollywood actress and activist, Rose McGowan has been indicted for cocaine possession by a grand jury.
January 2017, cocaine was found among McGowan's belongings that were
accidentally left on a flight to Washington Dulles International
McGowan, who has been out on $5,000 bail, has
repeatedly claimed that the cocaine was not hers, and even suggested in
court papers that the drugs were planted by movie producer Harvey Weinstein, who she accused of raping her.
the court papers filed in February, lawyer Jessica Carmichael said five
hours passed between the time McGowan got off the plane and her wallet
was found by a cleaning crew.
"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,
According to Jessica, she claimed that disgraced filmmaker Weinstein could have had the drugs planted.
"It is now public knowledge that Weinstein employed underhanded tactics to 'silence' his victims," she wrote.
Monday, she was indicted on one count of cocaine possession in Loudoun
County, Virginia, and faces up to ten years in prison if found guilty.
Gowan's trial date is reportedly set for Tuesday.
