• Octomom Pleads No Contest


    LOS ANGELES (CNS) – “Octomom” Nadya Suleman pleaded no contest today to a misdemeanor count of misrepresentation on a welfare application and was ordered to complete 200 hours of community service.

    The 39-year-old mother of 14 — she already had six children when she gave birth to octuplets in 2009 — had been charged with two felony counts each of aid by misrepresentation and perjury by false application after collecting MediCal and CalFresh benefits she was not entitled to.

    Los Angeles Superior Court Judge David Horwitz granted a motion to reduce the charges to a single misdemeanor and suspended Suleman’s sentence. He ordered 24 months of summary probation, which means that if she can stay out of trouble and complete her community service, her sentence will be considered served in full at the end of two years.

    Suleman filed for public assistance in Lancaster in January 2013, after a stint in rehab for anxiety and exhaustion depleted her savings, her representative said then.

    Prosecutors said Suleman failed to report the extra income she earned through checks for personal appearances and residuals from videos in the first six months of 2013.

    She made full restitution, paying back more than $26,000 she had received by fraudulent means, according to Deputy District Attorney William Clark.
