There shouldn’t be the same precautions taken for a person who has no criminal record, as someone who does have a criminal record. If someone has a criminal record and convicted again, there is a reason that some searches are taken place. On the contrary, if someone is convicted, but has no criminal record, there shouldn’t be searched done unless there is suspicion, or if there is something suspected about him/her, or if he/she has been caught red handed with a substance, or has not been completely honest with the situation at hand.
