Rose McGowan in­dicted on co­caine charge

The Middletown Press (Middletown, CT) - - Kickoff -

LEES­BURG, Va. — A grand jury in Vir­ginia has in­dicted ac­tress Rose McGowan on one felony count of co­caine possession.

News out­lets re­port the panel handed down the in­dict­ment Mon­day.

Charg­ing doc­u­ments say co­caine was found in a wallet McGowan left be­hind on a plane last year. McGowan has main­tained the co­caine isn’t hers, and has sug­gested in court pa­pers that the drugs were planted at the be­hest of movie pro­ducer Har­vey We­in­stein.

We­in­stein at­tor­ney Ben Braf­man on Tues­day called the al­le­ga­tion a “lu­di­crous claim” that he said po­lice had “cat­e­gor­i­cally re­jected.”

McGowan was among the first to ac­cuse We­in­stein of sex­ual as­sault, and she and oth­ers say he’s ag­gres­sively sought to dis­credit his ac­cusers. We­in­stein has de­nied all the ac­cu­sa­tions.
