Actress Rose McGowan indicted on cocaine charge in Virginia

Rose Mc Gowan has reportedly been indicted on cocaine charges

The maximum sentence for the charge is 10 years in prison. These charges would have never been brought if it weren't for her activism as a voice for women everywhere.

McGowan's trial date will be set today.

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority obtained the warrant in February past year 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. McGowan had flown in for the Women's March on Washington that day.

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. "I assure you, this selective prosecution will be met with a strong defense".

She has pleaded not guilty to the crime, and maintains the drugs could have been planted as five hours had passed between McGowan leaving the wallet, which contained her ID card, and it being found by a cleaning crew.

At a hearing last month, prosecutors made the case that McGowan's wallet was properly handled from the moment it was found on a United Airlines plane early January 21, 2017.

In November, The New Yorker revealed that Weinstein had hired an ex-Israeli intelligence officer to monitor his accusers and journalists close to the story.

TMZ reported that the actress pleaded not guilty.

Weinstein was indicted and charged with rape in the first and third degree and a first-degree criminal sexual act last month.
