337. In no case may the defendant agree to carry out more than 1,500 compensatory work hours.
Where the defendant opts for alternative measures in place of compensatory work, the number of hours provided for in the first paragraph does not apply.
Among other things, a commitment by the defendant to undertake a training program or to keep a dwelling constitutes an alternative measure.
The carrying out of compensatory work corresponding to the maximum provided for in the first paragraph enables the defendant to pay all the sums due at the time of the agreement, whatever their amount.
