The former soap opera star and Idol presenter was found guilty on Friday of three separate drug offences by Södertörn District Court, Expressen reports.
"My lawyer and I are very surprised since the prosecutor didn't call for a prison sentence," she told the newspaper.
Bråding, 28, admitted to using cocaine after she was arrested in late April and traces of the drug were discovered in a urine sample.
The court convicted her of the possession and purchase of cocaine. She was also found to have passed on quantities of the drug to her boyfriend and a selection of their friends.
Bråding's boyfriend was also tried and sentenced to a year and eight months in jail.
