It could have been a lot worse for Nadya Suleman.
But instead, the pop-culture celeb known as Octomom pleaded no contest today to one misdemeanor count of welfare fraud.
The 39-year-old mother of 14 was originally charged with four felonies, having been accused of leaving $30,000 off her reported income on an application for public assistance in 2013 and receiving benefits she wasn't entitled to.
Suleman was sentenced to 200 hours of community service and two years of probation, as well as ordered to pay a small fine.
