Nadya “Octo-Mom” Suleman was charged with three felony counts of welfare fraud on Jan. 6 and faces nearly six years in prison if convicted, RadarOnline.com is reporting.
The charges come on the heels of Radar’s exclusive report revealing financial records in which the single mother-of-14 was shown to have earned much more than legally allowed for her to also be collecting welfare.
Suleman is capped at pocketing $119,000 in a calendar year, but financial records showed she took home $150,248.77 in 2012.
According to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, Suleman failed to report nearly $30,000 in earnings while raking in the public assistance in 2013.
The D.A. charged Octo-Mom with two counts of perjury by false application and one count of aid by misrepresentation, which could land her in the slammer for a maximum of five years and eight months if convicted.RELATED: Octomom Stripping Photo: Nadya Suleman Dances On Valentine's Day In West Palm Beach (NSFW PHOTO)
