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

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. "What a load of HORSES**T". She's even suggested that Harvey Weinstein may have had a hand in planting the drugs to damage her credibility in his sexual assault cases.

Weinstein has denied the allegations.

Defense attorney Jessica Carmichael argued, however, that there was not enough evidence to prove McGowan's guilt, pointing to inconsistencies among witnesses as well as the hours that passed between the flight's landing and the wallet's discovery. McGowan was not present in the courtroom and will not attend her trial Tuesday, local radio station WTOP reported.

McGowan's spokesperson confirmed to CNN the accuracy of her published quotes at the time. The crew who cleaned the United Airlines plane following her flight found her wallet.

The "Charmed" star and her attorney assert that she left her bag containing her wallet on the plane unattended. The police said two bags of cocaine were in the wallet.

She reacted quickly with a tweet in which she charged that "they" were trying to get her to keep quiet about claims she had made about Weinstein's sexual misconduct with her.

Later that year an arrest warrant for McGowan surfaced, shortly after she publicly accused Weinstein of raping her.

"Imagining I'm going into sisterly solidarity, I can think of nothing more opposed to that, energetically, that I would want in my body at that moment", she said referring to the cocaine.

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