The mother of the boy who recently got Michael Jackson into court on child-touching charges is going to find herself in the dock pretty soon - She's been accused of fraudulently collecting welfare benefits while sitting on USD150,000 she'd picked up from a lawsuit against a department store. How did the authorities find out? A little bird told them...
