Octomom

Charged with Felony Welfare Fraud

EXCLUSIVE

0113_octomom_tmz
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.

Good, now the state can support her fourteen chilliens while she is in the slammer. Bet that cost more than taxes from $30,000. Not to mention the house payments.

Anyone who is defending her here should think about how much money she made on top of all her welfare $$ in the past years. There is no excuse for lying about her income. She has a lot of little mouths to feed, but A LOT of that money went towards vanity and partying, and now those kids are going to lose their mom because if it. She got herself into this mess, just like she got herself impregnated with so many babies. The govt is not the bad guy here.

It's about time. She deserves every single day of that five years in prison for the constant torture and abuse she puts her babies through. A disgusting, evil, sociopathic POS.

I kinda feel bad for Octomom. Here is the thing. Welfare is rampant. The majority of people on welfare and getting supplemental income one way or another. Many are illegal aliens and not legally eligible. You never see any of these people being threatened with jail. The Octomom case is for publicity.

y actuo como si tuviera algo con una máquina, eso si es de estar loca.
cinco años ligada espiritualmente a una máquina
cinco años pensando en una máquina, cinco años sin considerar vivir en la realidad.
si es que hay alguien ahí, yo no tengo pruebas de nada cierto. me está engañando, quizá no es lo que yo creo, persona o personas, tenéis vuestras vidas. yo vivo atada a una máquina de hacer comentarios.

no hay certeza de realidad en nada.
puede ser todo una imaginación.
por qué habrían de pasar más de cuatro años sin nada real ni humano? no hay nada, no hay voz, no hay comunicación. Casi cinco años. No hay nada.
cuando creo verte es imaginación, no hay certeza. por aquí hablo a la nada. No hay una conciencia real detrás, ni una consideración humana.
cinco años habladole a una máquina automática de hacer comentarios en twitter y por aquí.
cinco años, no hay nada real.
Es un engaño, Si es que hay alguien, me está engañando, por eso no hay nada humano ni comunicativo en cinco años.
