What are the consequences for welfare fraud?

I know someone who is in trouble for welfare fraud because she didn’t report her boyfriend living with her since May 2009. They want all of his income information from that date to present in order to check for possible medicaid overpayment (meaning he will pay back some of her medical bills). First of all, why is he responsible for her when they aren’t married (just have a child together) and what are the consequences for this? She doesn’t receive financial assistance or food stamps, she is only on medicaid.
