(AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes, File) (Newser) – She's baaaack: Octomom is making headlines again, and she's apparently not going to start doing it in a good way. Nadya Suleman has been charged with felony welfare fraud, the LA Times reports. More specifically, she faces one count of aid by misrepresentation and two counts of perjury by false application for aid, which stem from the fact that she allegedly failed to report almost $30,000 in income from her porn video when she applied for welfare last year and, as a result, got $16,481 in illegal welfare payments. If convicted on all counts, she faces five years and eight months in prison, USA Today reports. She's due in court Friday.
