‘Octomom’ Nadya Suleman has been charged on 3 felony counts of welfare fraud.
The mother of 14 had in January last year signed up for welfare after leaving the same program back in 2012, saying she was stripped of cash needed to take care of her kids.
But the L.A County District Attorney’s Office alleges that Suleman deliberately refused to report $30,000 in earnings from her personal appearances and income from her videos – specifically, her X-rated masturbation video.
The D.A therefore charged her on two counts of perjury by false application for aid and one count of aid by misrepresentation. If convicted on all counts, Octomom could face up to six years in jail.
The D.A has asked the judge to set bail at $25,000.
