Octomom pleads not guilty to welfare fraud

Nadya Suleman is the woman that has been known as Octomom since she gave birth to octuplets way back in 2009. The woman had had major issues in the media and at one time was quite well known and made personal appearances and shot videos apparently.

We knew she had done some nude work to pay the bills at one point. What you might not have known is that while Octomom was making money off personal appearances and videos she was also cashing welfare checks. In total, the woman has 14 kids, I am sure she needed help from somewhere to support the family.

Octomom found herself in court recently on a single count of welfare fraud. The plaintiffs in the case say that as she cashed welfare checks she wasn't reporting the income she was making off the video and appearances.

The state of California is seeking $26,000 in compensation from the woman reports WebProNews. Octomom has reportedly waived her right to a trial by jury. She has to return to court on April 16 if she doesn't reach a plea deal by then. If found guilty on the single count, the woman faces over six years in jail.

She will likely avoid jail if she agrees to pay back the money she owes the state. The woman apparently counted on fame to support her and her 14 kids. That didn't work out too well for her.

If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
