Harvey Weinstein Accuser Rose McGowan Doesn't Believe He'll 'Ever Be Prosecuted for Any Rapes'

  Harvey Weinstein Accuser Rose McGowan Doesn't Believe He'll 'Ever Be Prosecuted for Any Rapes' Rose McGowan believes that the man she accused of rape, Harvey Weinstein, will never face time behind bars — period. “I don’t think Harvey Weinstein will ever be prosecuted for any rapes,” the actress and activist told GoodMorning Britain onWednesday. “You have to understand the judicial system is completely stacked against victims in any way, shape or form, in that most people cannot, in fact, seek justice that way,” added McGowan, 44, before going onto suggest that police officers, justices and judges should be specifically trained “in sexual assault, sexual harassment and abuse, so they can understand it more.” Weinstein, 66, currently faces over 60 sexual assault and misconduct allegations against him. This includes McGowan, who graphically described her alleged sexual assault by the movie mogul in her book BRAVE. Weinstein is under investigation for rape by the Los Angeles Police Department. Meanwhile, police in the United Kingdom have widened their investigation into Weinstein to include allegations of sexual assault by seven women. The Charmed star said that despite writing a book about her alleged experience, what made her feel “the true weight lift” was when the Weinstein Company declared bankruptcy. “It’s like this multi-headed hyrda, this monster, and it kept trying to come back,” she added. “People kept trying to buy the company back for him, and I was like, ‘no, you must stay down, it must show other people around the world that this can be done.

In United States criminal law, probable cause is the standard by which police authorities have reason to obtain a warrant for the arrest of a suspected criminal or the issuing of a search warrant. It is also the standard by which grand juries issue criminal indictments.

A Virginia judge ruled on Thursday there was enough evidence to proceed with a felony drug case against actress and anti-sexual-harassment activist Loudoun County General District Court Judge Dean Worcester found there was probable cause to send McGowan 's case to a grand jury, Prince

McGowan was among the first actresses to accuse Weinstein of sexual assault. Weinstein has denied rape allegations. McGowan and others say Weinstein aggressively sought to discredit his accusers.

Authorities say cocaine was found in a wallet McGowan accidentally left behind on a flight to Dulles International Airport in January 2017.

The judge said the standard for finding probable cause is low and arguments about whether the drugs may have been planted are better suited for trial.

She is expected back in court late July where her intoxication and trespassing charges will be reduced to misdemeanors. The outlet reports that her felony charge for resisting arrest will be dropped once she pleads guilty. Celebrity Mugshots The reality star opened up earlier this month about the hours that led up to her December 24, 2017, arrest at the Colony Hotel in Palm Beach and claimed she might have been drugged . “I had rosé at lunch, with my girlfriend, we split a bottle of Whispering Angel, which is normal,” she said during an appearance on The Dr. Oz Show. “And then there were some people there that were fans, so they send me more rosé. So I drank more than I usually would.” She continued: “So, by the time I get to the Colony, I was pretty sloshed and then I don’t know. I almost think that somebody slipped me something, because I don’t remember a thing after that.” The #CountessAndFriends star also opened up to Us Weekly on May 6, after a new video of her arrest surfaced online.
