Actress, activist and author Rose McGowan was indicted Monday on one felony count of cocaine possession in Loudoun County, Virginia. A cleaning crew at Dulles International Airport claims to have found the wallet on a plane and it had two small bags of cocaine in it.

McGowan has accused Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of raping her and was one of the first to publicly accuse him of sexual misconduct.

McGowan told The New Yorker's Ronan Farrow that she lost the wallet while flying to D.C. for the Women's March.

"There is simply no point in time at which the evidence places Ms McGowan and the cocaine together in the same place", said Ms Carmichael, who suggested Weinstein could have had the drugs planted.

The actress has maintained that the drugs in her wallet were “planted” by people associated with Harvey Weinstein

According to TMZ, the former "Charmed" star's attorney Jose Baez said: "Rose steadfastly maintains her innocence".

In those same papers, McGowan also asked for the charges to be dismissed on technical grounds, arguing that drug crimes taking place on a plane in interstate commerce should be handled in federal court, not state court.

McGowan's trial date will be set Tuesday.
