Rose McGowan Was Indicted On Cocaine Charges: The Actress Claims She Was Framed By Harvey Weinstein
June 13, 2018
Rose McGowan was officially accused of cocaine possession and is now facing up to a year in prison. The drugs were found in the actress' wallet at the airport in January 2017.
The 44-year-old actress insists on being framed and denies the accusations. McGowan's lawyer says they're convinced she was targeted by Harvey Weinstein, as he's been proven to hire investigators to seek out women who filed complaints of sexual misconduct against him. According to Rose's attorney:
These charges would have never been brought if it weren’t for her activism as a voice for women everywhere. I assure you, this selective prosecution will be met with a strong defense.
