‘Octomom’ faces additional welfare fraud charge
February 06, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — “Octomom” Nadya Suleman (NAH’-dee-uh SOO’-luh-mahn) has been charged with an additional count of welfare fraud, alleging she collected $10,000 in MediCal benefits that she wasn’t entitled to.

Suleman was charged last month with three counts of fraud. At the time, authorities said she didn’t disclose about $30,000 in earnings from videos and personal appearances when she applied for welfare last year.

They said at the time that they want Suleman to pay back $16,000 in benefits. With Wednesday’s charge, that amount rises to about $26,000.

The 38-year-old single mother of 14 children remains free on her own recognizance.

She’s due in court March 11 on the original charges. Authorities say she’ll face arraignment on the new charge then.

She could face as much as six years and four months in jail if she’s convicted of all the charges.
