Rose McGowan indicted by grand jury in cocaine case

Rose McGowan indicted by grand jury in cocaine case

The Brave author has pled not guilty to the charge, claiming that she had been without the wallet for five hours before getting it back.

As for McGowan, the maximum sentence for the charges against her is 10 years, according to WTOP.

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. The news stems from a January 2017 incident in which she left her wallet on her seat after a United Airlines flight into Washington, DC's Dulles Airport.

McGowan told Farrow she has used drugs in the past, but said marijuana was her "jam".

McGowan was not in the courtroom at the time, and she reportedly will not be present when her trial date is scheduled.

Rose McGowan indicted on cocaine charge in Loudoun Co.

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

Rose McGowan has been indicted by a grand jury in her ongoing cocaine possession case, and she has pleaded not guilty. "It is now public knowledge that Weinstein employed underhanded tactics to "silence" his victims'".

She has maintained her innocence; her lawyers have argued that someone planted the cocaine, possibly someone connected to Weinstein. "I assure you, this selective prosecution will be met with a strong defense". "This indictment brings the defendant another step closer to accountability for the crimes of violence with which he is now charged", Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. said in a statement.

Weinstein has since been arrested on charges of rape, committing a criminal sex act, sexual abuse and sexual misconduct in NY for which has pled not guilty.
