Sarah West appeared from episode 658–668. She first appeared in the lock up as one of Pamela's cases. A fiery, impulsive Aboriginal inmate who suffers from abuse from racist prisoners, especially from Spider and Vicki who tie her up and paint her white, and to get back at the women, Sarah sets up a tripod releasing poisonous fumes of hydrochloric acid through the air conditioning. Rita eventually gets through to Sarah and Pamela manages to trace her foster parents, who tell Sarah the truth about her real parents, her mother has died and her father is a white alcoholic. She was transferred to Barnhurst for her own safety after Craven's threats to Pamela.
