Octomum charged with benefit fraud

Nadya Suleman has been charged with welfare fraud

"Octomom" Nadya Suleman has been charged with welfare fraud.

Suleman, who has octuplets and six other children, failed to report nearly 30,000 US dollars in earnings while applying for public assistance last year, according to authorities in Los Angeles County, California.

She has not been arrested but has been ordered to appear in court on Friday.

A prosecution statement says she was charged on January 6 with one count of aid by misrepresentation and two counts of perjury by false application. If convicted, she faces up to five years and eight months in custody.
