Rose McGowan is potentially facing a year in prison after being indicted by a grand jury for cocaine possession. She later pleaded not guilty to the charge.

McGowan's attorney Jim Hundley declined to comment.

'These charges would have never been brought if it weren't for her activism as a voice for women everywhere. The actress said she reported the wallet missing when she realized it was not on her person. The items tested positive for cocaine.

Defense attorney Jessica Carmichael argued, however, that there was not enough evidence to prove McGowan's guilt, pointing to inconsistencies among witnesses as well as the hours that passed between the flight's landing and the wallet's discovery.

McGowan recently hired Baez, a high-profile Florida lawyer who represented Casey Anthony and Aaron Hernandez in their murder trials. She's even suggested that Harvey Weinstein may have had a hand in planting the drugs to damage her credibility in his sexual assault cases.

McGowan, who was traveling to Washington for the Women's March when the incident occurred, said the next day she received an Instagram message from a user she did not know that read, "You left your wallet on your Saturday flight with your 2 bags of coke".

"There is a warrant out for my arrest in Virginia", she wrote.

Through a spokesperson, Weinstein has consistently denied any allegations of "non-consensual sex".

Weinstein was indicted and charged with rape in the first and third degree and a first-degree criminal sexual act last month. McGowan has said repeatedly that the drugs may have been planted on her, and are not hers.
