Alexander v. State

In Alexander v. State, 38 P.3d 543 (Alaska App. 2001) the Court reviewed a case where the superior court imposed a probation condition that required the defendant to "take advantage of sex offender ... programs that are available" while in custody. The superior court ruled that "take advantage of" meant that Alexander was required to "enroll in and fully participate" in the treatment program. The Court determined that this probation condition -- that Alexander "take advantage of" treatment -- gave Alexander sufficient notice that he had to "make meaningful efforts to participate in the treatment program."
