Rose was arrested on a felony drug charge in Virginia in November 2017.

McGowan says she is being targeted because of her advocacy against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

Charging documents say cocaine was found in a wallet McGowan left behind on a United Airlines plane at Washington Dulles International Airport previous year.

Rose has pleaded not guilty to the case, and states that she was without the wallet for five hours before she retrieved it.

She also cited reports that Weinstein hired private investigators to follow women who had made accusations against him.

Charging documents say cocaine was found in a wallet McGowan left behind on a plane previous year.

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

Her attorney has allegedly waived her appearance at the trial. She previously stated that she believes the wallet was taken from her backpack while she was travelling.

On October 30, McGowan first publicly responded to the existence of the warrant on Twitter.

"Rose steadfastly maintains her innocence", her attorney Jose Baez said in a statement.

"Imagining I'm going into sisterly solidarity, I can think of nothing more opposed to that, energetically, that I would want in my body at that moment", she said referring to the cocaine.

Rose McGowan accidentally left her wallet on a United Airlines flight at Washington Dulles Airport a year ago. He couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
