Octomom

Charged with Felony Welfare Fraud

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.

Does anyone really think she'll do time? Better to keep her out to look after her kids, than put them in foster care. She's not the only one cheating welfare. Some people were raised on welfare and feel it's their given right to receive welfare their whole lifetime.

The kids need to be divided up into small group homes with occasional visits with each other. As long as they are with her, there is no way they will grow into productive adults with sound minds. She needs to be put in a mental hospital.
