Octomom Facing 3 Felony Charges for Welfare Fraud

Having 14 children will not land you in jail, but attempting to feed them just might, if you do it with funds the IRS doesn’t know about.

Nadya Suleman, better known as Octomom, became popular internationally after giving birth to octuplets in January of 2009. Suleman’s octuplets serve as the second full set to be born alive in the United States and after they survived a full week they passed the worldwide survival rate. The high number of babies born brought with it a great deal of controversy around the subject of reproductive technology.

Though Suleman began her celebrity on a positive note that soon changed when it was revealed that she already had six other children prior to having the octuplets. It worsened when it was, too, discovered Suleman was unemployed and on public assistance programs. Suleman used in-vitro fertilization (IVF) to conceive her octuplets as well as her six older children. Despite her passionate denial of receiving any type of public assistance, it was confirmed by Suleman on NBC’s Today Show in April 2012 that she was indeed using it.

Nearly two years later Octomom still does not seem to appreciate the importance of being honest about her income.

Octomom was very recently charged with three felony counts of welfare fraud. According to TMZ, if convicted, she will be looking at over five years in prison.

Charges were filed by the L.A. County District Attorney’s Office. Those charges include one count of aid by misrepresentation and 2 counts of perjury by false application for aid. According to the D.A., Suleman refused to report almost $30,000 in earnings between the beginning of January and the very end of June.

More specifically, Octomom allegedly failed to disclose income she accumulated from January 1 to June 30, 2013, for appearances she made and residuals from videos she received. TMZ believes the video in question is a m@sturbation video.

The D.A. is requesting bail for Suleman be set at $25,000.

    Shall we call her act as “White lie” and move on to assist this woman and the kids? I come to find out in this contemporary world that major and serious crimes are ignored, especially those who have power and resources.Let this go….help this “little” family.

      “Help her”???? Help her do what???? She’s the one who CHOSE to have EIGHT MORE BABIES in addition to the six she ALREADY had. Why should people have to pick up the slack for her irresponsible behavior, as a black woman I get annoyed as hell over people doing irresponsible dumb sheit and expecting the govt to pick up the slack. She needs to be forced to pay every dime of the money she STOLE from taxpayers. Confiscate the $30k or $50k she has if she still has it. She shouldnt get a pass because shes a white woman and if she was black she would be UNDER the dayum jail by now. Let Octomom take her lumps.
