Rose McGowan's trial date set for cocaine charge

Authorities claim that she unintentionally left her wallet behind at Washington Dulles International Airport after a flight.

If convicted, Rose can face up to a year in the slammer.

Her attorney Jose Baez said McGowan's charge is a result of "her activism as a voice for women everywhere".

Last month, it was ruled the case would be heard at trial by a grand jury, and on Monday, McGowan was indicted for one felony count of cocaine possession. She later pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Rose McGowan has been indicted by a grand jury in her ongoing cocaine possession case, and she has pleaded not guilty. McGowan had flown in for the Women's March on Washington that day.

Rose McGowan accidentally left her wallet on a United Airlines flight at Washington Dulles Airport previous year. This is a warrant out of my arrest in Virginia. A detective testified that when he called McGowan about the wallet and said she would have to pick it up at the airport police department, she said she would come but never did. In court filings, McGowan's attorneys suggested someone connected to Weinstein planted the illicit materials in a bid to damage her credibility.

She has maintained her innocence; her lawyers have argued that someone planted the cocaine, possibly someone connected to Weinstein. "I assure you, this selective prosecution will be met with a strong defense".
