  • Rose Mc Gowan indicted on cocaine possession charge could face up to 10 years in prison

If convicted, Rose can face up to a year in the slammer. McGowan said she filed a lost luggage claim and tweeted United Airlines for help when she realized her wallet was missing, according to The New Yorker's report.

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

TMZ reported that the actress pleaded not guilty. McGowan had flown in for the Women's March on Washington that day.

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.

'These charges would have never been brought if it weren't for her activism as a voice for women everywhere.

"It is now public knowledge that Weinstein employed underhanded tactics to "silence" his victims". "I assure you, this selective prosecution will be met with a strong defence".

"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.

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.
