A judge on Tuesday set actress Rose McGowan's trial for a cocaine possession charge for Jan. 15 and Jan. 16, 2019.
Original story: June 11, 8:55 p.m.
Actress Rose McGowan was indicted Monday by a Loudoun County grand jury on one count of felony cocaine possession.
The charged stemmed from an incident in January 2017, when cleaning crews at Dulles International Airport found McGowan's wallet on the floor of a United Airlines flight. Upon inspection, authorities found two baggies containing a white substance.
Witnesses in a hearing last month testified that two separate tests concluded the substance, found in a black Chanel wallet, was cocaine.
Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Detective J.C. Hughes said he called to notify McGowan that her wallet had been located on the floor of the plane. According to Hughes, McGowan asked the detective if she could just pick up her wallet at the airport. After Hughes told McGowan the wallet was in the possession of law enforcement, McGowan allegedly made no attempt to retrieve the item, which, according to authorities, also contained a medical marijuana card, an insurance-type card from the Screen Actors Guild and some currency.
McGowan's defense team argued last month for the case to be dismissed, claiming there wasn't probable cause linking the cocaine to McGowan's ownership. The defense claimed there is no evidence that McGowan knew the cocaine was in her wallet and that she never demonstrated possession of the wallet.
McGowan is one of the leading and most vocal accusers claiming sexual assault against disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein. The actress has suggested that Weinstein or people associated with him may have planted the drugs in her wallet.
The case has moved from General District Court to Circuit Court. A trial date is expected to set Tuesday.
