    Actor and director Rose McGowan raises her fist during her opening remarks to the audience at the Women's March / Women's Convention in Detroit, Michigan, on Oct. 27, 2017. A stream of actress including Rose McGowan, models and ex-employees have come out, many anonymously, to accuse Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment and abuse dating as far back as the 1990s.

    A Virginia county prosecutor has recused himself from actress Rose McGowan's upcoming trial for felony possession of a controlled substance, citing conflict of interest. 

    Prince William County Commonwealth's Attorney Paul Ebert tells WTOP-FM that Loudoun County Commonwealth's Attorney Jim Plowman asked him to take over the case, as McGowan's attorney represents him in a federal civil rights case. Ebert says the special prosecutor arrangement was approved Nov. 21. 

    Police say belongings left on a January 2017 flight arriving at Washington Dulles International Airport tested positive for narcotics. 

    McGowan has said she intends to plead not guilty. She and her attorney, James Hundley, say the drugs could have been planted.
