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.
