Arviso is charged with fraudulently obtaining roughly $8,000 in welfare payments by allegedly lying about her financial situation.

During the Jackson trial, Arviso was asked under oath why she continued to receive welfare when she had more than $30,000 in her bank account. She refused to answer the question and took the Fifth.
