Does opting for old domain prevents sandboxing?

Sandboxing is something where Google temporarily reduces the rank of the website because of manipulative link building carried out by the new site. So i would like to know your views, that if we opt for an old domain, would the chances of sandboxing reduce?

Google lists web pages - not domains - so, unless you have the same pages as existed before, Goolge would treat it as a brand new site.
