Maximum penalty underage pocession of alcohol

A 19 year old female friend has just been found guilty (Code 4.1-305) pocession of alcohol. She was found guilty and fined $500 + $86 cc, 6 mos susp DL, and 12 mos in jail- not suspended. She had no lawyer since she knew she was underage-guilty- and ''told'' $500 fine, susp DL was what to expect-by the court. This 12 mo sentence came out of nowhere. She appealed it today, Is this jail sentence legal?
