Quoting m0mma_sphinxx:" Will they arrest her? I don't want my little brother to get lost in her mess."
She could, what she is doing is fraud. But the upside, is that if she does they would place him with family before foster care.
The longer it goes on the higher her chances of getting arrested will be. If she gets audited by the county on their own She will for sure go to jail and will be stuuck with a very large fine.
If you want to talk over PM's I can fill you in a little more indepth. This is something I can speak to since Criminal Justice and Law are where I major in.
