After almost a two year wait, Nadya Suleman finally had her day in court yesterday in her welfare fraud case
. Octo-Mom was accused of accepting welfare and Medi-Cal payments in 2012 despite making $30,000 over the maximum to claim such benefits. Because Suleman paid back almost $25,000 in benefits she received, her felony charges were reduced to misdemeanors and she was ordered to perform 200 hours of community service and two years of probation. While she is performing those 200 hours of community service the State will be on the hook for paying for someone to watch her kids so it will probably cost the state more than what she paid back. The investigation also cost more than the net benefits she received. I wonder also what kind of financial pressure having to pay back that money put on her. That is a lot of money to come up with when you are trying to raise 12 kids. In 2013 she didn't make over the limit which means she is raising kids on less than $119K a year. I guess another reality show or porn video is in her not too distant future.
