Octomom has just been charged with 3 felony counts of welfare fraud and now faces more than 5 years in prison if convicted on all counts, TMZ has learned.

The L.A. County District Attorney's Office filed the charges, including 1 count of aid by misrepresentation, and 2 counts of perjury by false application for aid. The D.A. claims Octomom -- real name Nadya Suleman -- failed to report nearly $30,000 in earnings between January 1-June 30, 2013.

Octo is accused of failing to disclose income between January and June of 2013 -- specifically, money that she got from personal appearances and residuals from videos.  TMZ knows ... the video in question is a masturbation video.

The D.A. is asking the judge to set bail at $25,000.

Besides the nut case she is, she's unattractive. Those kids should have been taken from her a long time ago.

Those poor, poor kids. IMO, they should all be given the option of being adopted out.

Still think the brilliant doctor should have to pay out the wahzoo for helping bring these children to this irresponsible woman. He should be helping to support these children from his own negligence.

I feel sorry for this woman and her brood of innocent offspring. It's the children who always pay the price for the poor life choices of the parents.
