Charging documents say cocaine was found in a wallet McGowan left on a plane last year. McGowan had maintained innocence, suggesting in court papers that the drugs were planted at the behest of producer Harvey Weinstein.
Weinstein attorney Ben Brafman called that allegation a "ludicrous claim." McGowan was among the first to accuse Weinstein of sexual assault. McGowan will enter the plea Jan. 15, the day her trial was to begin.
