LEESBURG: Actress and activist Rose McGowan will stand trial in January on a charge of felony cocaine possession in Virginia.
News outlets reported McGowan's trial was set for Tuesday, a day after she was indicted. She will be tried on January 15.
Charging documents say cocaine was found in a wallet McGowan left on a plane last year. McGowan has maintained that she is innocent, suggesting in court papers that the drugs were planted at the behest of producer Harvey Weinstein.
Weinstein's attorney Ben Brafman called the allegation a "ludicrous claim."
McGowan was among the first to accuse Weinstein of sexual assault. She, along with others, said he aggressively sought to discredit his accusers. Weinstein has denied all accusations.
McGowan's attorney Jose Baez said the charge was a result of "her activism as a voice for women everywhere."
