'Alaskan Bush People' Family Admits To Theft And Fraud, Takes Plea Deal

The Discovery Channel's "Alaskan Bush People," otherwise known as the Brown family, are finding themselves in a bit of hot water outside of the wild woods they call home.

Billy Brown, the father and leader of the pack, and son Joshua stood before a judge on Thursday where they admitted to lying on an application for their yearly oil revenue check.

According to Fox News, Billy Brown, 62, claimed to be a resident of Alaska on the state's Permanent Fund applications from 2009 to 2012, during which he was not a resident and collected $7,956 in state dividends.

Joshua Brown, aka Bam Bam, admitted to collecting $1,174.

As part of a plea deal, the family has been ordered to pay back the money, abide by probation terms for two years and complete 40 hours of community service.

Mother Amora and her three other sons -- Solomon, Gabriel and Noah -- have also been ordered to complete 20 hours each of community service in addition to each paying back $3,000 in dividends, Fox News reports.

For fans of the show, the nine-person family's rising and falling financial situation, living conditions and health concerns are characteristic of daily life in the Alaskan wilderness -- theft and fraud not included.
