Rose McGowan indicted on felony drug possession charge

New York residents may be aware that the actress Rose McGowan was charged with cocaine possession in February 2017 after a small quantity of the drug was found in a wallet belonging to the actress that had been left on a plane. McGowan was one of the first women to publicly accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault and rape, and she claims that the disgraced Hollywood mogul arranged for the cocaine to be planted in an attempt to smear and silence her. However, the publicity surrounding the case did not prevent a Virginia grand jury from indicting McGowan on one felony count of possession of a controlled substance. The indictment was issued on June 11.

Comedian avoids jail time for drug charges

New York residents may be interested to learn that comedian Artie Lange will not face jail time for his recent heroin possession charges. On June 1, he received a sentence of four years of probation from a New Jersey judge. In addition to probation, he will be required to complete 50 hours of community service. Additional stipulations require that he seek outpatient rehabilitation treatment in a recovery program.

Why prosecution witnesses in drug cases can be problematic

Prosecutors often obtain drug convictions through means such as eyewitness testimonies and police officer testimonies. However, witness testimonies can frequently be problematic. For one thing, the witnesses might have incentives to lie. Perhaps they believe that if they testify a certain way, they will get years knocked off a sentence.
