“While applying for public aid, the mother of 14 children allegedly failed to disclose that she was also getting checks for personal appearances and residuals from videos. She allegedly failed to report the extra income she earned between Jan. 1, 2013, and June 30, 2013,” the Office of the District Attorney said.

Octomom has used online dating auctions, porn, donations and nude photography in an effort to make money. She has dealt with financial problems in the past, including bankruptcy. Arraignment is scheduled for Friday in a courtroom in downtown Los Angeles. It has been reported that prosecutors will be asking for bail of at least $25,000.

Octomom is facing at least five years in prison is she is convicted on the charges.
