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.

How could a moron with no money, eight children and a self abuse video be accused of such craziness? This is not America.

Just another example of the decay of the American society, this low life is considered a celebrity in today's world. Years ago no intelligent person with a brain would have paid any attention to her.

They need to cut her off. If you have that many children you need to have a plan in place to support them. Let's be real though if she goes to jail the state is still going to have to support the kids. It's all part of a flawed system.

She is a total loser and should be put in jail for her offenses. People keep bailing her out. That has to STOP! Her parenting skills are non existent and she has children with special needs in the litter she whelped. Put the children in good, loving, nurturing homes and hang that bitch out to dry. Can you say "accountability"?
