You're right, here in Spain if you don't have prior convictions don't go to jail for a sentence under 2 years.

Her sentence include 7 years of disqualification for public employments

As a Dane it's not surprising that someone is given a jail sentence that they don't end up serving. Just because she gets a pass from serving her prison term now (which is likely dependent on her having no prior convictions) any future convictions may cause her to have to serve the full term. She has technically been given a jail term but may get out of serving it if certain conditions are met in the past and in the future. The fact that she has been sentenced to jail, even if she doesn't end up serving the sentence, will likely limit her access to certain types of jobs and opportunities as well. I agree that this could be more confusing for people from other legal regimes, but I don't believe most northern europeans would find the headline especially misleading.
