WADA Rule: If you admit you doped after being confronted - your doping suspension is one year?

From AGI Italia in regards to Italian cyclist Marta Bastianelli: "... articles 2.1 and 10.5.2 of Wada regulations, declared the athlete herself responsible for the ascribed charges and, recognizing the reduction of the sentence for a not substantial offence, imposed her a year ban with effect from 7 August 2008, date of the precautionary suspension, to 6 August 2009. ..."

Jessica Hardy, post trials, got a one year ban after admitting she inadvertently took Clenbuterol via a food supplement. [Link] The Guardian [Link]

I can't find anything that says Hardy admitted to accidentally taking clenbuterol. What am I missing?
