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.

Why not also charge her with the years and years of bogus "workman's comp" she received? How about charging her with scamming the student loan program? Has she repaid one dime of the student "loan" money she took and then used to get IVF over and over and over again? How about charging her with the the TWO MILLION dollar hospital bill that the good people of the State of California had to pay for this nutjob job so she could deliver a little of IVF babies? She's a grifter, a scam artist, a con artist, a liar and so are her skunk parents. She's so mentally ill that she is incapable of caring for a dog, yet she still has 14 children in her custody.
