Janet Jackson, the woman who claimed Michael Jackson molested her son, was ordered on Wednesday to stand trial on a charge of welfare fraud.
Janet Jackson is accused of accepting $8,000 in fraudulently obtained assistance, and four charges of committing perjury on welfare applications.
Prosecutors allege that she hid the fact that she received a substantial settlement in a lawsuit against J.C. Penney before she filed for welfare.
Her lawyer, Patricia Hattersley, said that she hopes that the case can be resolved without a trial.
The prosecutor's office said the case will go to trial unless she makes restitution.
The trial is scheduled for August 7th.
