"Octomom" Nadya Suleman is in trouble again - this time with the law. L.A. County prosecutors announced Monday that the mother of octuplets had been charged with one count of aid by misrepresentation and two counts of perjury by false application for aid, L.A. Now reported. What does that mean, in English? Cutting to the chase, it means she could face more than five years behind bars if convicted of all the felonies. The mother of 14 is accused of failing to report nearly $30,000 in income - earned via appearances and royalties from her self-pleasuring porn video - when she applied for welfare in the first half of last year.

" Octomom " Nadya Suleman, who drew international attention in 2009 when she gave birth to octuplets, has been  charged with an additional count of welfare fraud, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office said Wednesday. The amended felony complaint includes an additional count of aid by misrepresentation, and alleges Suleman, 38, received nearly $10,000 in Medi-Cal benefits she was not entitled to. Prosecutors said earlier this month that Suleman received $16,481 in state welfare payments during the first half of 2013 that she would not have been sent had she properly disclosed nearly $30,000 in earnings during that same period.

Even in this economy, Nadya Suleman, a.k.a. the “Octomom,” continues to find work, albeit with a killer commute: The La Habra mama has booked a stripper gig at a gentleman's club in Florida. Next week, Suleman will perform seven times over four days at T's Lounge in West Palm Beach, according to the club's website. And yes, the mother of octuplets, twins and a handful of other tykes “will appear topless at some point during her show,” her rep told CNN on Monday. What audiences can expect during the rest of the show was unclear - though perhaps that's for the best.

"Octomom" Nadya Suleman, who drew international attention in 2009 when she gave birth to octuplets, could face years in jail for allegedly failing to disclose nearly $30,000 in earnings when she applied for welfare last year, prosecutors announced Monday. Suleman, 38, is only the second U.S. woman to deliver a healthy set of octuplets. The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office said prosecutors recently charged her with one count of aid by misrepresentation and two counts of perjury by false application for aid. Suleman, who has a total of 14 children, filed for welfare in Lancaster in January and February of last year, but in the following months didn't report all of her income from personal appearances and video royalties, Deputy Dist.

The Beverly Hills fertility doctor who assisted Nadya Suleman in conceiving octuplets and six previous children repeatedly failed to screen her for mental health issues and to limit the number of embryos she had implanted, an expert witness testified Monday at a medical board hearing in Los Angeles. Dr. Michael Kamrava implanted Suleman with a dozen embryos before she conceived octuplets, an expert said at the hearing ? twice the number of embryos Suleman has said in the past. Kamrava could have his medical license revoked if it is determined that he was grossly negligent in his treatment of Suleman and two other female patients: a 48-year-old who suffered complications after she became pregnant with quadruplets and a 42 year-old diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer after receiving fertility treatments.

Back in February, the world's media converged on Whittier hoping to get a glimpse of octuplet mother Nadya Suleman and her 14 children. The media moved on when Suleman took a home in nearby La Habra. But the legacy of "Octomom" lives on at the Gold Mine VW Auto Parts building on Pickering Avenue in Whittier. There, drivers can't help but chuckle at a display that owners Ralph and Diva Chase have set up. Mounted on a wall is half a grabber-blue 1969 Volkswagen Beetle. Inside, a black-haired mannequin -- respectfully named Teri, not Nadya -- is sitting with her legs crossed, surrounded by doll babies.

The Medical Board of California has accused a Beverly Hills fertility doctor of a pattern of gross negligence that led to the birth of Nadya Suleman's 14 children, including the world's longest-surviving octuplets, and created a "stockpile" of unused frozen embryos which serve "no clinical purpose." The 13-page accusation filed in December against Dr. Michael Kamrava paints a picture of 11 years of medical care in which Suleman returned to Kamrava's office again and again to undergo fertility treatments.

The Beverly Hills fertility doctor who assisted Nadya Suleman in conceiving octuplets was wrong to implant her with a dozen embryos but mostly respected her wishes and "standard" procedure, a fellow fertility specialist testified Wednesday at a state medical board hearing. Dr. Michael Kamrava's medical license could be revoked if it is determined that he was grossly negligent in his treatment of Suleman and two other female patients: a 48-year-old who suffered complications after she became pregnant with quadruplets and a 42-year-old diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer after receiving fertility treatments.

Move over, Brangelina and your $14-million twins. There are some new babies in town. Whittier mother Nadya Suleman and her eight week-old babies are entertaining offers from media outlets around the world as they decide who will land the first interview and snap the first pictures. Suleman -- a 33-year-old unmarried mother who already has six children between the ages of 2 and 7, including a set of twins -- remained hospitalized Monday along with the octuplets, who continue to improve.

These are somber and sobering times, but they may offer us the opportunity to reexamine not only the material extravagance that has characterized so much of our recent life, but also some of its emotional excesses. Take, for example, the grotesque story of Nadya Suleman, the sad and disturbing serial mom whose apparent addiction to childbirth recently resulted in the delivery of octuplets.

San Jose residents are rallying to find a serial arsonist accused of setting at least 13 fires since Wednesday. No one has been seriously injured in the early morning fires, but authorities fear that good luck could run out if the arsonist isn't caught soon. Police believe the arsonist is using newspaper or cardboard to set the fires, which have ranged in size and scope. An elderly couple narrowly escaped one of the fires early Saturday after a man and his son reportedly broke through a window to pull them to safety.

Got 14 kids and a fledgling adult-entertainment career? The only thing missing might be rehab - but not anymore for "Octomom" Nadya Suleman, who reportedly checked into a treatment facility over the weekend.  Suleman, who moved her brood from La Habra to a Palmdale rental home in September, is getting help to get off doctor-prescribed Xanax and "learn to deal with her stress, exhaustion and anxiety" with professional help, her rep told TMZ. ...

“Octomom” Nadya Suleman filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy on Monday in Orange County, suggesting there's some validity to the notion that for a single mom with 14 kids and no steady job, it can be difficult to pay the bills. "I have had to make some very difficult decisions this year, and filing Chapter 7 was one of them," Suleman told the Orange County Register in an email sent by her manager. "But I have to do what is best for my children, and I need a fresh start. " Among those tough choices: Deciding to accept $2,000 a month in food stamps and posing nearly nude in March for British magazine Closer -- though she told Anderson Cooper she was “not ashamed” of what she'd done in exchange for $8,000.
