Yes, but do you really want to go through the password recovery process on a device that someone else has been managing with free reign? What if the configuration wasn't written to the device, you reboot it, and then you're facing a pristine new configuration? Congratulations, you now get to start rebuilding a network by hand with no real idea how it's setup. On top of that the guy who built it is sitting in jail and _really_ doesn't want to help you. You may be locked out, but at least the network still functions.

That may be, but there are some times when rules don't allow someone with a record to hold a privileged position. I've seen a few cases where people couldn't be allowed to do a certain job because of past actions. They were 20+ years earlier and, IMHO, rather minor. Regardless, sometime it's just not allowed.
