Nadya Suleman “Octomom” is making headlines again and once again it isn’t because she has done something good. Suleman is being accused of committing welfare fraud in the state of California, according to TMZ on March 20.
There was a complaint made to the L.A. County Department of Welfare Fraud Prevention and Investigation (WFP&I) that Suleman is getting various forms of welfare, but the complainant claims Suleman made almost $200,000 in 2012. In California, Suleman can legally get welfare for herself and her 14 children if she made under $119,000 in a calendar year.
Obviously if the complaint that was made is true, Suleman has exceeded the amount of money making her eligible for welfare. WFP&I is already conducting a probe and has interviewed people close to Suleman.
If Nadya Suleman “Octomom” is found to be guilty of committing welfare fraud, she could be looking at going to prison. If Suleman is convicted she could be looking at more than three years in prison. Of course, if she is like any other celebrity she will never see the inside of a jail. Maybe she should contact Lindsay Lohan’s lawyer.
