(WMC-TV) – The University of Memphis student charged with filing a false sex assault report will be back in court today.

Anne Campbell's case was reset to today after she confessed she allegedly lied about being sexually assaulted by an unknown man near campus.

As a result, the student has been charged with making a false report.

Police say prior to her confession, Campbell claimed the assault happened on Mynders Avenue. That is a very busy street where many students live.

Campbell is studying English and Spanish at the University of Memphis.

Police have not yet released a motive for what they are now calling a false report.
