According to an article published by Fox News on Jan 13., “Octomom” has been charged with welfare fraud.

Fox News reports that 38-year-old Nadya Suleman has been charged with welfare fraud for allegedly failing to report $30,000 in income while receiving public assistance for her 14 children. Reports indicate that she hasn't been arrested, but is set to face arraignment on Jan. 17.

Officials say Suleman collected $9,814 in CalFresh aid and $6,667 in aid from CalWORKS without reporting her full income. As a result has been charged with two counts of perjury by false application for aid and one count of aid by misrepresentation.

Suleman became a public figure when she gave birth to octuplets (8 babies at once) in 2009. The birth made medical history because all eight of the octuplets survived.

“Octomom” has made many headlines since the birth of her children. Some of the most shocking including visits from child protective services, and starring in an adult film in 2012.
