LEESBURG, Va. (AP) — A judge is scheduled to hear evidence on whether a drug possession charge in Virginia against actress Rose McGowan should go forward.
McGowan is seeking to have the charges against her dismissed. She has suggested the drugs may have been planted by agents hired by disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.
McGowan was among the first actresses to accuse Weinstein of sexual assault. Weinstein has denied rape allegations. McGowan and others say Weinstein aggressively sought to discredit his accusers.
Authorities say cocaine was found in a wallet McGowan accidentally left behind on a flight to Dulles International Airport in January 2017.
The hearing is scheduled for Thursday afternoon in Leesburg. An earlier hearing was postponed when prosecutors said a snowstorm prevented their witnesses from showing up.
