Rose McGowan to go on trial in January on cocaine charge

Leesburg - Actress and activist Rose McGowan will stand trial in January on a charge of felony cocaine possession in Virginia.

The charge carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.

A trial date will be set in Loudoun County, Virginia on Tuesday.

The arrest warrant arose from a police investigation of personal belongings McGowan left on a flight arriving into Washington Dulles International Airport from Los Angeles in January 2017. When the narcotics accusations against McGowan surfaced, she said it was an attempt to silence her and was a "load of horsesh*t".

Charging documents say cocaine was found in a wallet McGowan left on a plane previous year.

"There is simply no point in time at which the evidence places Ms. McGowan and the cocaine together in the same place", Carmichael wrote, adding that Weinstein could have planted the drugs during that period it was unaccounted for.

McGowan's attorney, Jose Baez, told People magazine: "Rose steadfastly maintains her innocence. I assure you, this selective prosecution will be met with a strong defence".

McGowan was among the first to accuse Weinstein of sexual assault. She pleaded not guilty to the charge.
