Rose McGowan indicted for felony cocaine possession

Rose has pleaded not guilty to the case, and states that she was without the wallet for five hours before she retrieved it. Authorities claim that she unintentionally left her wallet behind at Washington Dulles International Airport after a flight.

"Are they trying to silence me?"

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.

According to a report published by The New Yorker's Ronan Farrow in November, police said a worker cleaning the plane found McGowan's wallet, and in it were two small bags of powder that later tested positive as cocaine.


The actress' claims that she is being framed by Harvey Weinstein date back to October, soon after news of a warrant being issued for her arrest broke.

The "Charmed" star and her attorney assert that she left her bag containing her wallet on the plane unattended.

Weinstein has denied the allegations. McGowan has said repeatedly that the drugs may have been planted on her, and are not hers.

"There is simply no point in time at which the evidence places Ms McGowan and the cocaine together in the same place", said Ms Carmichael, who suggested Weinstein could have had the drugs planted.


If convicted, McGowan faces up to a year behind bars, but her attorneys have vowed to fight the charge all the way.

"I'm the only one who's had handcuffs on me so far in this situation", she told the publication.

Weinstein couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
