Section 52. Breach of conditions for a community sentence

On application, the district court may by judgment decide that all or parts of the alternative sentence of imprisonment shall be executed when the convicted person

In connection with such reversal, the court shall take into account how much of the community sentence has already been executed. If the alternative sentence of imprisonment is not to be executed in full, the court may extend the execution period by up to six months.
In the event of reversal pursuant to the first paragraph, b), the court may pass an aggregate sentence for both acts or a separate sentence in respect of the new act.
An application pursuant to the first paragraph, a), is made by the correctional services or the prosecuting authority. An application pursuant to the first paragraph, b), is made by the prosecuting authority. The application must be submitted to the court within three months of the end of the execution period.
The rules on notification in section 243 of the Criminal Procedure Act apply correspondingly to court hearings concerning reversal. The correctional services shall be notified pursuant to the same rules that apply with regard to the prosecuting authority.
