A recent case before the Alaska Court of Appeals focused on several issues raised by a sex offender who had his probation revoked because he would not participate in a treatment program. Daryle James was initially convicted in 1995 for sexual abuse of a minor and sexual assault. He received a sentence of ten years in prison with four suspended, plus five years of probation that included participation in a treatment program. But James maintained his innocence and would not participate in the program. A portion of his probation was then revoked and he was sentenced to another year of his suspended sentence while a post-conviction relief application was considered and then appealed. The Alaska Court of Appeals ultimately reversed the revocation of James’ probation.
