It is possible that if it has become a police matter that they will serve an arrest warrant on her and when she next passes through customs she will be arrested.

As the above poster points out if she's in the EU she doesn't really have a very good chance: she'll have to pay the money back, with small child or not.
You say she's "been proven to have committed benefit fraud"? was this in court, was she sent a summons?
The penalty will be higher if she's refused to attend court, if she hasn't received a summons yet I'd advise her to 'turn her self in' so to speak. That way the court will take her problems into account, eg. has two small children and the court will be more willing to set reasonable terms for her to pay off the money she's stolen.
Otherwise she'll be held in contempt and either get a larger fine or have a few days prison time.

She will be arrested as soon as she re-enters the country and if it's a large sum a prison sentence is likely.

It is a matter for the Police and a court of law to judge her.

It seems that its ok for politicians to commit fraud so I guess its ok for the rest of us
