Judge denies Rose McGowan’s motion to dismiss felony cocaine possession charge

Rose McGowan’s legal team has argued that Harvey Weinstein was responsible for planting drugs in the actresses’ wallet. A Virginia judge wasn’t convinced it was enough to drop the felony cocaine possession charge against the “Charmed” actress.
Judge Deborah Welsh of Loudoun County General District Court on Monday denied McGowan’s motion to dismiss the case from January 2017, when an airplane cleaning crew found McGowan’s wallet next to the seat she had occupied for a flight to Dulles International Airport. The wallet allegedly contained two bags that tested positive for cocaine.
McGowan’s lawyer filed paperwork in February claiming Weinstein might have set up the actress.
“It is now public knowledge that Weinstein employed underhanded tactics to ‘silence’ his victims,” Jessica Carmichael said in court documents, according to the People . It has been reported that Weinstein hired intelligence agencies to spy on his accusers.
Carmichael also said five hours elapsed from when her client deplaned to the time that her wallet discovered.
“There is simply no point in time at which the evidence places Ms. McGowan and the cocaine together in the same place,” she wrote, according to the Daily News .
Judge Welsh said it would be premature to dismiss charges against McGowan prior to her March 21 preliminary date. Prosecutors have also said they have additional evidence that were not included in the original charges filed against McGowan.
McGowan herself floated the idea that Weinstein was retaliating against her for her naming him as her alleged rapist.
