Rose McGowan indicted on cocaine charge in Virginia

Rose McGowan indicted on cocaine charge in Virginia

A grand jury in Virginia has indicted actress and activist Rose McGowan on one felony count of cocaine possession.

'These charges would have never been brought if it weren't for her activism as a voice for women everywhere. "I assure you, this selective prosecution will be met with a strong defence". The actress said she reported the wallet missing when she realized it was not on her person.

Charging documents say cocaine was found in a wallet McGowan left behind on a United Airlines plane at Washington Dulles International Airport past year. The items tested positive for cocaine. The wallet was found by a cleaning crew about five hours after McGowan deplaned, according to the Associated Press. The 44-year-old claims that she has been set up by disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein and that the cocaine was planted in her wallet. The airport found two bags of cocaine inside.

Through a spokesperson, Weinstein has consistently denied any allegations of "non-consensual sex".




After McGowan's tweets, Weinstein hired several private security agencies, one operated by veterans of the Israeli intelligence service Mossad, to block women from reporting that he allegedly sexually assaulted or harassed them, according to the New Yorker.

Later that year an arrest warrant for McGowan surfaced, shortly after she publicly accused Weinstein of raping her.

McGowan told Farrow that she was afraid when an airport police detective called her to retrieve her wallet, as she was unsure whether he was actually a detective.
