I have a question about welfare fraud in Texas.

You should definitely consult with a lawyer, and bring to the lawyer meeting a copy of your application & other welfare documents, as well as the information about the account. (Like the type - is it a TUGMA, etc.)
You could be prosecuted for fraud depending on the account type, the questions you answered, and the agreement you entered. You are less likely to be prosecuted if it were just an error, and you cooperate (with an attorney assisting you.)
Fraud is actionable if certain elements of proof are established by the evidence. Using the written documentation you have is a good place to begin. Contact a local lawyer - many may give you a free consultation for an hour - to discuss your specifics. Far too many variables exist in the short post you wrote for any further observation by me. Many San Antonio attorneys have information posted here on Avvo.

No one can know what the record is in the case because online we cannot see your documents. You need a lawyer. Check with a lawyer in your locale to discuss more of the details.
Good luck to you.
