Sara Jane Parkinson’s crooked cop husband evades justice again

BETTINA ARNDT’s update on the infamous Sarah Jane Parkinson case of false rape accusations, and its ongoing damage. 

Sarah Jane Parkinson was sent to prison after making false rape and violence accusations against her ex-fiance, Dan Jones (as we reported). The whole story is featured on Mothers of Sons, as Dan’s mother, Michelle explains the terrible damage caused to their family.

Despite the best efforts of the Jones family and many of my followers to lobby the ACT parole board, Parkinson was released after serving the minimum non parole period of just over 2 years. She is currently living with her suspended NSW police officer husband, Scott John White, in the Wollongong area and has changed her name to Sarah Jane White.

This has given her plenty of time to collude with Scott White who was facing a trial for perjury last week, on the 28th of June. The hearing was put off due to the Covid lockdowns and now the case looks likely to be heard in November.

White was charged with two counts of perjury some six months after Parkinson’s sentencing in 2019 – charges relating to his testimony at her trial in 2015. He stated that he had not assisted Parkinson to write her “statements” but there is undeniable evidence that he did coach her. White was inextricably involved right from the outset in helping Parkinson concoct her villainous allegations against Dan Jones. It was the discovery of their affair that led Jones to break off his engagement with Parkinson, and White and his other crooked cop mates were right in there, helping Parkinson try to destroy Jones and his family.

At the hearing last week, White’s legal representative approached the DPP and stated his client was willing to plead guilty to a lesser charge that did not involve jail time – an intriguing twist after endless adjournments of the matter over the last two years.

The Jones family is nervous that White plans to wriggle out of the serious charges he is facing and have expressed concern to the DPP. Their strong preference is that the DPP reject his “offer” and proceed to trial later this year so that White and Parkinson are put on the stand. Parkinson has never faced cross-examination, even at her own trial. Additionally, the evidence of other NSW police listed as witnesses could lead to additional charges.

The Jones family would love concerned readers to contact the ACT Attorney General Shane Rattenbury – rattenbury@act.gov.au – and put pressure on the DPP not to accede to White’s wishes. It’s very important these people are aware of community concern about the Jones case which has exposed bias and incompetence in the ACT justice system.

After two years, AFP Professional Standards in Melbourne still claims to be “investigating” the behaviour of police in the case – with absolutely no results to date. The Jones’ legal team continues their efforts to seek compensation but progress is extremely slow. And ACT authorities have endlessly sidestepped responsibility, avoiding the issue of an ex-gratia payment for the family as compensation for Dan Jones’ wrongful imprisonment. The saga continues.

    the legal system isn’t it. clearly he was wrongfully accused the family should get back everything they spent PLUS the guy should get 5 months worth of work money he missed out on due to being in prison

  2. Having seen Dan Jones in Perth WA in the last year, I’m intrigued and interested. I have written to the Minister ACT. The ACT Police are corrupt. I experienced that during 2013. Remarkable is that one of my daughter’s is Claiming to have married a Mr White. Whilst she left her Mum homeless, living out of a Vehicle. From 2007 to 2021. I “the Mother” was trying to get resolve in the Federal Family Court at ACT. They called the police. I’d been talking to the Queanbeyan NSW Police SGT Paul Bartiso. I think that’s his name. I’d been swindled, out of a house, money , kids and Possessions. I knew nothing about Mr Dan Jones until 60 minutes published “His” story. I was overseas in New Zealand when two Circuit family court registrars swindled me out of Real Estate, during 2011. I came back to Australia to resolve the matter, and found that Red Brick Walls, went up. I remain homeless. I went to AFP recruitment evenings, in Canberra ACT. In the hope that I could join up to fight Corruption & Illicit drugs. Then Dan Jones Story was published. Sarah Jessica Parkinson, was a cunning little minx, but so are the West Australian Police too. The Courts, Lawyers and Registrars. The three that Swindled me, have remarkable links to two NSW Missing Persons Case’s. I hope Dan Jones reads my comments.

    This is horrendous and thank God for the amazing female detective who discovered this womans lies. What happened to this family is appalling, disgusting and they must be compensated. I had a similar thing happen to me – my ex partner tried to kill me repeatedly punching me in the head and then bashing my head repeatedly against a brick wall. I was a petite five foot two woman and he was significantly larger and stronger. I went to police but they failed me badly, not even making a report even though I was black and blue with major head contusions. He ran to police and told them I was a lying nutter who was trying to destroy his life and that I’d bitten his hand for no reason. I had bitten his hand in self defence but he had no injury, not a mark. When police asked me about this I admitted I’d bitten his hand in self defence when he was trying to kill me. I was charged! I’d never had so much as a speeding ticket before and was a hard working successful professional woman. I was dragged through the court like a common criminal. I was severely harassed and assaulted by police. I lost my beautiful home and my life spiralled out of control. I have never recovered, I lost everything. He was never charged despite all my obvious injuries. NSW Police believed his lies and were extremely bias against me. NSW Police destroyed my life.

    • Wow, Similar story to mine. Attacked, Swindled, arrested, charged, told to “Play the Game”. Lost contact with the kids, whom I believe are involved in Gang Crime and Police Corruption from QLD to Tasmania to NSW to Western Australia. Yeah, I’m also apparently Insane, and even though I’ve been battered, bruised and insulted. With witnesses, present WA Police have never taken either Male’s to Court. On assualt Charges. But the WA Police have arrested me, instead. Doing quite a lot of VICTIM BLAMING. They turn, tide. I’ve since seen the house’s, they are all using to ABUSE MY RIGHTS. Illicit drugs and Alcohol Abuses, are a dreadful Horrorbillis 16 Years. What a wreck. But the Australian Government continues to pander to them, the true offenders.

    You should have to pay this family some money for at the very least NOT DOING YOUR JOB. If any I MEAN ANY EFFORT would have been made to verify the claims falsely made against mr Jones they would have been found to be lies from the start.The work that miss Alexander did that ultimately led to the accuser admitting she had fabricated the entire story should have been done 6 YEARS PRIOR and the jones family’s,not to mention plenty of money on your end from being COMPLETELY WASTED.4 months in a SUPER MAX PRISON with the worst criminals you can find as a former c/o WHEN YOU ARE AN INNOCENT WORKING PRODUCTIVE MEMBER OF HIS COMMUNITY. The mental strain on himself and family members that led to the demise of a 30 plus year marriage.Those are just a few of the reasons why this family is OWED its more than money if you ask me but the very least you should do to attempt to make it right is to make them whole again.You should double what they put out to prove their sons innocence but that’s another issue for another time.BUT THE MAIN REASON YOU SHOULD PAY THIS FAMILY IS BECAUSE AFTER ALL THEY WENT THROUGH BECAUSE OF YOUR POLICE DEPARTMENTS MISCARRIAGE OF JUSTICE OF SO MANY LEVELS,SHE GETS 2 YEARS IN JAIL AND THE POLICE DONT EVEN GET ANY REPERCUSSIONS?? Just plain sad..

  5. Maria says:

    These are the only emails since July? C’mon people! Cause a rucous! This could be your family member. If you live in this community, do something! More TV, protests. Make as many people aware as you can. This woman AND the local PD are pure evil! All this family can receive now is compensation…Someone start a gofundme or whatever you do in Australia. Good luck Dan and your wonderful parents. I hope they can come together again. Such a sad and horrific story!

  6. Geri rizzo says:

    Sara Jane White and Scott John White, the people in Wollongong should be very concerned you live amongst them. What horrible horrible creatures allowed freedom.
    John Scott Whites police colleagues are not much better. I hope they all get the full force of the law… yea, what law.

  7. Rosa says:

    Every time I read about this case, makes my blood boil… That women is nothing but the Devil in disguise, my heart aches for Dan , his mom Michelle , his dad and all , the ones , whom in one way or the other had to suffered this terrible ordeal.I truly hope that every single dollar that you lost be restituted but above all your faith and joy for life. Truly hope justice be serve… I’m so happy for that wonderful officer investigator, and for your unconditional and resilient dad, and mom.

  8. Mike Henry says:

    This story is so sickening, it is a sordid affair and shows the ineptitude of the police and the entire judicial system. From my observations many policemen (as well as other para and military men) are extremely gullible, sexually insatiable and partial towards stories told by flirtatious women. In other words if they see an opportunity to sleep with a woman, they will believe anything she says and move heaven and earth to prove her claims via confirmation bias. Many would deny this but it is a part of policing that very few would admit to. Apart from claims of domestic violence, it is also seen with child support claims and false rape allegations. The fact that Sara was sleeping with that officer (and who knows if there were others) his foolish masculine ego and those of his colleagues allowed them to set about proving her ex-fiances’ guilt without even properly examining the evidence. This is why it took a female officer to review the evidence objectively because she was not charmed and p****whipped by that despicable woman. Sara should not be free after 2 years and her corrupt and incompetent husband needs to go to jail for his involvement. It is a shame doesn’t the law allow the family to sue the State or police department for such a horrible injustice?

    • Lorraine Cooke says:

      I was a female police officer and agree completely with everything you’ve said in regards to how male officers can be so easily deceived by flirty females falsely reporting domestic violence, abuse or sexual assaults. Male officers should never be allowed to investigate these cases.

  9. Charles Sowards says:

    I think this woman should be made to pay restitution to this family, if not with cash then jail time, she should be doing 10 years min. How and what she put this family through is despicable. I just can’t find the words to fit the evil in this person, And her new love is just as bad, If theres any justice they will be put in a straight line and shot with one bullit, scum like this belongs on a pond, and thats where they should throw the body’s.

    • Chad says:

      You are correct. The police should pay as well they did little to no investigation and just took her at her word.

      • Neil says:

        Thanks Carles and Chad, yes, that’s really obvious to anyone with ethics. Unfortunately, the Radical Feminism movement has this so stitched that unless a story is this bad or a man is deliberately killed in a vicious premeditated manner, the story won’t even be run in mainstream media let alone restitutions paid.

  10. Maris says:

    It is a legal system – not a justice system. My husband, family and I know, only too well.

  11. Daniel M McDonald says:

    This is disgraceful. Never should she have be released. What a terror.

  12. Brian Johnston says:

    Of course he will evade ‘whatever’.
    The police stick together. It is them versus society.
    They are a ‘brotherhood’.

  13. Williambtm says:

    Through the agency of so many people having online access nowadays that it’s only a short amount of time that this gross injustice dished out to Dan Jones becomes known to many thousands of people. Even worse is that the State’s Police Force is reluctant to make any comment. In other less Westernized countries, the people would rebel against their police forces knowing this kind of schitt is going on.
    A classic case of how the people in Australia are increasingly unable to trust the police uniform.
    There are good police officers out there, more than there are crooked police officers, problems begin when their work colleagues believe what claims are being made by those bastard crooked police officers.
    Usually, the crooked police are the ones holding high rank, that’s how it is in Tasmania.
    Add to that the State’s dodgy Supreme Court judges, then this State’s justice department, though I do make an exemption for the honorable Justice Brett.

  14. Robin Bowles says:

    Unfortunately, this and many sagas like it continue! Cops don’t commit perjury … if they lie under oath it’s called ‘noble corruption. — yes, they have term for it. It’s used to protect their mates or strengthen a flimsy set of evidence . I’ve signed the petition. I hope all your readers do too!

    • Peter Gill says:

      Mark Geragos wrote an excellent book in which he explains that most witnesses testify but cops testilie – and that most (not all, just most) of the cops do so because they think they’re actually doing the right thing, to keep the scum off the streets, ie they think it’s for the overall good to testilie in court. I highly recommend his book.
