Octomom Nadya Suleman has been charged with welfare fraud, according to a Jan. 13 report by CBS News. She was charged on Monday for fraud after failing to report $30,000 in earnings, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office.

Suleman was formally charged on Jan. 6 with one account of aid misrepresentation, according to a CBS Los Angeles report. She was also charged with two counts of perjury for falsifying documents for public assistance.

The DA's office said, "While applying for public aid, the mother of 14 children allegedly failed to disclose that she was getting checks for personal appearances and residuals from videos. She allegedly failed to report the extra income she earned between Jan. 1, 2013 and June 30, 2013."

This isn't the first time that Suleman has faced financial problems. She's faced bankruptcy and foreclosure in the past. The octomom resorted to stripping, porn videos, online date auctions and donations as a way to make money.

If she is convicted, she will receive up to five years and eight months in prison. She will be arraigned Friday in court where prosecutors will ask to set her bail at $25,000.

Nadya Suleman is the mom to octuplets, born in January 2009. She also has six other children. Both children are the result of in-vitro fertilization. She released an adult video in 2012 and filed for bankruptcy later that year.
