Octomom

Pleads NOT GUILTY

To Welfare Fraud

Nadya Suleman just pled NOT GUILTY to all 3 counts of felony welfare fraud.

TMZ broke the story ... Octomom was charged with cheating the welfare system out of more than $16K by failing to report income she made from personal appearances and her masturbation video.

Octo faces nearly 6 years of prison, but here's the way it usually works.  If she pays what she owes, prosecutors will probably reduce the charge to a misdemeanor and judges usually don't send first time offenders to jail -- they get probation and community service.

Octo was receiving food stamps and other assistance because she stupidly had 14 kids.

Where does she get the money for lip injections? Seriously?? She's clearly had a nose job and a boob job and tummy tuck (tell-tale scars everywhere). She is a lying psychopath who's only goal was fame. No one will work with her for more than five minutes. The doctor should be fined and she should never get rewarded for trying to scam society, welfare and all those kids who have and will continue to cast the taxpayers millions over their lifetime. In-vitrio multiples have added zeros to our healthcare crisis just as unnecessary procedures on the elderly have. Millions to save these ultra preemies who have issues for years. Maybe people would stop and take a breath and realize that forth change-of-life litter isn't as necessary as you think. Grow up people...stop the madness! She's just an extreme example of I CAN TAKE MORE IF I WANT AND EVERYONE ELSE CAN PAY UP FOR MY SELFISHNESS!!! I've had it. Kids are expensive, elective surgery is expensive, we all pay for it one way or another and it's destroying this country. Don't be such gluttons. Quality...not quantity!!

Those poor children. Isn't California great? It's the land of plea-bargaining.

She's baaaack    

Okay what is it? I've been looking at a few of her recent picture since these charges have come down and she's had face work but I just can't seem to figure it out. I think she had a nose job but there must be more than that. Does anyone else see it?

Everytime something negative is printed about her & potential legal ramifications... It NEVER happen, she's been in this position b/fore & nada......
This woman is safe from ever being incarcerated for afterall, she has 14 kids & would cost the taxpayers more to take care of the kids then keep her out of jail.....

She will plea bargain and get a felony with probation. She will likely be banned from receiving state aid for awhile.

They should sterilize that ugly woman. Who in their right mind would masturbate to her? Maybe a blind person.

The court should give her a deal. They'll drop the charges if she disables her egg maker.

So very sad all the way around, folks are making stupid and lame jokes, but it's mainly the children I'm thinking about, to me she and the woman from 'Kate Plus 8' are almost the same (except folks are hating on Kate, and she did make a lot of money). Wish there was a way for Nayda to put her degree to work, in order to support her and those children. Terrible and sad all the way around.

This woman is obviously mentally unstable, but I don't think justice will be served by throwing her in jail. The state would be obligated to take care of her children. Isn't there any kind of job training she could be eligible for instead of her making videos of herself rubbing one out or making personal appearances at strip clubs? She needs to find a way to earn a living and provide a stable home. Her living off the taxpayers dime and constantly getting evicted is no way to raise a family.
