by at . Comments

After a turbulent 24 hours, Amber Portwood was released from jail and is about to be reunited with her 2-year-old daughter, Leah, according to her lawyer.

"It's my understanding that Leah will be placed back with her," Robert Schembs said.

Portwood pleaded not guilty to three felonies - two counts of domestic battery and one count of neglect of a dependent - after being arrested on Tuesday.

After turning herself in, the troubled Teen Mom star was booked late Monday and detained overnight at the Madison County jail in Anderson, Ind.

She is no longer allowed to have contact with Gary Shirley, according to her lawyer. However, he adds, "To my knowledge, they're on good terms."

"I'm really proud of her," he says. "She was strong. Her outlook was positive. She had shock, of course, but was in good spirits. She's really trying."

Following her televised beatdown of Shirley, she's going to have to try harder to change her ways if she wants to stay out of an orange jumpsuit.
