The woman you are speaking of had a reduced sentence by the judge. She was going to jail for other crimes, and was facing 12 years in prison for those crimes alone. She was sentenced to 5 years for those crimes. Then she was 'punished for the above mentioned crime, not by adding onto the sentence, but having it as a concurrent sentence. So, the lady in question should have been in jail for over a decade, but was only sentenced to 5 years total. So, in everything but on paper, she didn't serve any time for lying about her adress.
