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.

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.

I work hard for my money and resent people like her even breathing the same air as me. I barely make ends meet the way it is and can't even be eligible for any type of gov't assistance because I "make too much money"! What a joke

Nadya, since you are undoubtedly reading these comments, I wish you and your family some good luck in the future. You obviously need all you can get.

I'm sure some stupid azz or stupid AZZES will get on the bandwagon and donate another shiat load of money this hoor so she can go out and get more plastic surgery Botox and lip injections, buy more designer clothes and bags, get more mani's/pedi's, buy more Starbucks, buy more bags of clothes from the Gap and of course buy herself a much neded gym membership. After all, the at the very least a single unmarried welfare mother of 14 who has not worked since 1999 DESERVES is a gym memership and free babysitting so she can get in some much needed "me" time.

This woman needs serious mental help. Doesn't anyone think the doctor who hooked her up should bear some responsibility. She should pay for what she has done just like anyone else, but, there are other people involved who should pay as well. How about the welfare people who didn't do thier job??? They always seem to get off scott free.

She's gonna love prison! Hope she gets 3 hots and a cot and all the sex she apparently wants. What a loser, sucking off the gov't on our hard earned tax dollars. I'm a single parent and supposedly make "too much money" to qualify for any type of assistance. Who does she think she is?

She is such a pathetic human being. The doctor who had such nonexistent ethics and instrumentally impregnated her should be made to pay for every one of those lab created spawn.

Has it ever been disclosed as to who the father of all these kids are? I remember reading something that said she claims that the father is the same for all 14 kids. Why is she not being forced to turn over the name of the father(s) so the state can seek child support to pay for some of this welfare money that she's collected? If she doesn't disclose honestly--no money, no food stamps, no medical for her or any of her brood.

Time to put this whore on ice. Her shena****ns can't be good for children. What will she end up having them do, make videos to bring her more revenues?
