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.

Makes sense to throw her ass in jail so we can pay for her to be there and paid for her kids to be taken care while she is in the slammer.

The state is going to wind up raising those kids one way or another. Someone remove that women's breeding bits.

Lmao. Her face looks plastic, maybe she has been scamming the govt. before she got caught. That is how she paid a doctor for lip injections and 12 embryos to be placed inside her. And I thought her real name was Natalia something? Why is her name Nadya Suleman?

Wow, she put on pants, a sweater and a coat. Yeah she's really rockin' that outfit. Plus, her suit isn't black. The purse is, not the suit.

I'm tired of this story. This is a very sad situation on so many levels and I don't enjoy seeing TMZ make light of it. Watching this woman who clearly has mental issues be bullied is no fun either.

Listen...I get what she did....we know she is not well in the head...but the facts is she has a lot of children, and it would not be in the best interest for them to throw her in jail. That would mean they would have to find several homes for these kids...give her a payment plan and make her pay it back....I know she did this to herself...and I am not making an excuse for her at all...but throwing her in jail is just not the answer....

This woman has serious problems - both mental and financial. There are more appropriate and “fun” targets.

On one pole is WELL ...on the other pole is DAMAGED.

Most of us fall in between ...various shades of both.

We've all lied.

Most of us will lie again and again and again.

The State of California will offer Nadya probation - if she demands a jury trial. Why you ask? Because the money she made, was mostly from a video production of her playing the air-guitar on her lady-bizness !

NO jury member could ever enjoy life again...if forced to watch that exhibit A during trial...
