Authorities arrested a Clemson University student Wednesday after they discovered she made false claims about a rape.

South Carolina’s Oconee County Sheriff’s Office arrested and charged 18-year-old Sarah Katherine Campbell for filing a false police report of a felony, the department announced in a press release.

Campbell reportedly alleged a fellow student raped her in January at the Delta Chi Fraternity House — an off-campus university frat house. The Criminal Investigations Unit of the Sheriff’s Office concluded the sexual act was consensual amid their investigation into the case.

“The investigation continued and evidence was gathered in the case; and based upon that evidence, it was determined that the sexual relations between Campbell and the male at the Fraternity House was consensual and that Campbell had not been truthful in the information that she provided to the investigator in the case,” the department noted.


Campbell was released on a $5,000 personal recognizance bond.
