When “Octomom” Nadya Suleman charged with felony welfare fraud on Monday, the first question the fans asked was about the kids. The announcement to press charges against Octomom was in the news on Monday and according to Gossip Cop, the decision to pursue charges was decided by the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office.

Now the Los Angeles Times is reporting that the star is scheduled to appear in court for arraignment Friday. Asking that a bail be set for the celebrity, there has been no indication what might happen to the children of the mother. If she can’t raise the expected $25,000 (or it could be more) who will take care of the children?

Nadya Suleman, who has a total of 14 children, has a full time job caring for her family. With a move to Lancaster to get away from the Hollywood glare, the star hasn’t been in the spotlight for a while, so people don’t know how she will care for the children while she deals with the allegations or if she goes to jail. Keeping the cameras away from the home, Suleman has people questioning how her situation would be dealt with and some fans think the children will be placed in foster care.

If the 38-year-old mother is convicted of one count of aid by misrepresentation and two counts of perjury by false application for aid she could be in prison for up to five years. This scary idea has people focusing less on the star and more on the children.
