Dayton v. State (2005)

In Dayton v. State, 120 P.3d 1073 (Alaska App. 2005), the defendant was indicted for first-and second-degree sexual assault, but negotiated a plea bargain with the State allowing him to plead no contest to third-degree assault. Id. at 1076. As a condition of probation, the superior court required the defendant to submit to warrantless searches for weapons. Id. at 1084. The Court reversed this condition of probation because "the record contained no indication that Dayton has ever used or possessed weapons in violation of the law, or that he has used or carried weapons during the commission of a crime". Id. at 1085.
