Rose McGowan Indicted for Felony Cocaine Possession

Rose McGowan has been indicted on one felony count of cocaine possession in Loudoun County, Virginia.

After the hearing, her attorney, Jose Baez, told TMZ, "Rose steadfastly maintains her innocence". She later pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The Charmed alum's trial date has been set for Tuesday, June 12, just one day after her indictment.

Airport authorities reportedly found cocaine in a wallet McGowan left behind at Washington Dulles International Airport while she headed to the Woman's March in January 2017.

The maximum sentence for the charge is 10 years in prison.

"Are they trying to silence me?"

The actress previously suggested agents hired by disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein may be behind the incident, aimed at discrediting her for making sex assault accusations against him.

"There is a warrant out for my arrest in Virginia", she wrote.

Rose has become a figurehead in the MeToo and Time's Up movements, both of which were arguable triggered by numerous allegations made against Weinstein.

According to court documents filed in February, Jessica Carmichael, McGowan's then-defense attorney, pointed out that five hours had passed between the time when her client left the plane, where she forgot her wallet, and the cleaning staff found it.

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.

CNN has reached out to McGowan's representatives for comment.
