In mitigation, Caroline Banana's solicitor David Green said "all remorse and shame has been expressed by my client".
He added offers of employment for Banana had been withdrawn when potential employers discovered her case in the press.
She doesn't complain and accepts she has done wrong and that the public has a right to know about the case through the media.
But she has been significantly affected.
He said one of her daughters had been beaten up at school as a result of Banana's notoriety while vandals had targeted the family home.
Mr Green added Banana had begun repaying what she had wrongly claimed and was going to sell a £60,000 property in Turkey she had bought with the winnings to help settle the rest of her debt.
