I was a little confused too frankly. But, from what I gathered, first it would take a firm stand in refusing such a search. If, at that point, an officer were to improperly arrest you for refusing the search, then you would have grounds for filing suit. So, it appears it’s a grey issue until you have court recognized measurable harm. Even at that, the attorney stated the sheriff is empowered by law to confirm a registrants residence, yet the law is vague and undefined as to how the sheriff may go about confirming residence. So…seems a catch 22.
