Rose McGowan will plead "no contest" to her recent drug possession charges.
The charges stem from an incident that took place on the night of Jan. 20th, 2018 at Dulles International Airport, in Virginia. Airport personnel called the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police Department, informing them that a staff member cleaning a plane had recovered McGowan’s wallet containing two small bags of white powder which was later discovered to be cocaine.
According to E!, McGowan's attorney, Jim Hundley said:
"The Commonwealth and Ms. McGowan have reached a plea agreement in her case. The Commonwealth has agreed to reduce the current felony charge to a misdemeanor of possession of a controlled substance.
"Ms. McGowan will enter a plea of no contest to the reduced charge when she appears in court on January 15, and the Commonwealth will recommend a sentence that requires Ms. McGowan to pay a fine."
Hundley added that McGowan is making the plea "in order to spare her family, her friends, and her supporters the emotional strain of a criminal trial.
"The agreement brings this ordeal to an end and allows her to focus all of her energy on what matters most to her – creating a better world. Ms. McGowan will comment on the day of the plea."
