A North Albury woman who sent messages containing intimate pictures of her ex-partner to his workplace had shown "not a lot of remorse" for her crimes.
That was despite pleading guilty to the resultant charges before Albury Local Court.
Even as she was being sentenced by magistrate Richard Funston, the woman tried to interject, still protesting it was the victim's fault.
But she was quickly cut-off and calmed by defence lawyer Angus Lingham, who had argued on sentencing that his client's case involved "clear and serious mental health issues at play".
The woman, 36, who for legal reasons cannot be identified, pleaded guilty to a domestic violence-related charge of intentionally distribute intimate images without consent and to two charges of using a carriage service to menace, harass or offend.
Mr Funston pointed out one of the conclusions of a sentence assessment report prepared by NSW Community Corrections.
"There's not a lot of remorse shown in this report, is there?" he put to Mr Lingham.

Mr Lingham said the relationship ended, the woman now lived alone and she was 34 weeks' pregnant to the victim, though Sergeant Peacock said he disputed he was the father.
They were in a relationship for about two months, then she contacted police on July 16 to allege he had sent her threatening messages.
But when police contacted him the following day he told of receiving 97 messages from her since May 7 - and each time he blocked her, she created a new account.
His employer received 61 messages, addressed to him, that included allegations and threats of violence, self-harm threats and pornographic images of the victim.
Mr Funston, when placing her on an 18-month communications order, told the woman that "this is a really serious matter".
