Rose McGowan, the actress and activist who was among the first to accuse movie producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault, was indicted by a grand jury in Virginia on one felony count of cocaine possession. She claims she is being framed.

News outlets reported a Loudoun County grand jury handed down the indictment on Monday.

Charging documents said cocaine was found in a wallet McGowan left behind on a plane last year. McGowan has maintained the cocaine isn't hers, suggesting in court papers that the drugs were planted at the behest of Weinstein. He couldn't immediately be reached for comment.

McGowan and others say Weinstein aggressively sought to discredit his accusers. Weinstein has denied all accusations.

McGowan's trial date will be set Tuesday. Her attorney, Jim Hundley, declined comment to media.
