      • (b) consents to taking the prescription medication.

      (8) An offender does not breach his or her detention conditions for the purposes of section 80S if he or she withdraws consent to taking prescription medication; but the failure to take the medication may give rise to a ground for variation or cancellation of the sentence of home detention under section 80F.

        • (ii) the continuation of the sentence is no longer necessary in the interests of the community or the offender.

      (2) A probation officer may apply for an order under subsection (4) if an offender, who is subject to a sentence of home detention, is convicted of an offence punishable by imprisonment.
