Actress Rose McGowan indicted on cocaine charge in Virginia

Rose Mc Gowan leaves Loudoun County District Court in May

The charge carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.

The Charmed alum's trial date has been set for Tuesday, June 12, just one day after her indictment.

In January 2017, the actress' wallet went missing while she was waiting at baggage claim.

McGowan has maintained the cocaine is not hers, suggesting in court papers that the drugs were planted at the behest of movie producer Harvey Weinstein.

Rose McGowan attends the Vivienne Westwood show as part of the Paris Fashion Week Womenswear Fall/Winter 2018/2019 on March 3, 2018 in Paris, France.

'These charges would have never been brought if it weren't for her activism as a voice for women everywhere.

Anthony Bourdain’s daughter, 11, in concert days after his death
Before welcoming his daughter, he noted that he was "frankly, asking for trouble". 'I'm shocked by how happy my daughter is. Since splitting with Busia in 2016, Bourdain had been dating Italian actress Asia Argento for the past year.

Later that year an arrest warrant for McGowan surfaced, shortly after she publicly accused Weinstein of raping her. "I assure you, this selective prosecution will be met with a strong defence".

According to a report published by The New Yorker's Ronan Farrow in November, police said a worker cleaning the plane found McGowan's wallet, and in it were two small bags of powder that later tested positive as cocaine. McGowan has said repeatedly that the drugs may have been planted on her, and are not hers.

"It is now public knowledge that Weinstein employed underhanded tactics to "silence" his victims".

Weinstein has since been arrested on charges of rape, committing a criminal sex act, sexual abuse and sexual misconduct in NY for which has pled not guilty.

TMZ reported that the actress pleaded not guilty.
