Amber Portwood: Released From Jail, Denied By Halfway House, Strapped With Ankle Monitor!

by at . Comments

After more than two months behind bars, Amber Portwood is a free woman.

Sort of.

The Teen Mom star, who had been locked up for drug possession and probation violations galore, was released only after the halfway house where she was supposed to complete a drug treatment program apparently refused to accept her.


According to sources, people at the transitional home - Sister 2 Sister Ministries - thinks Amber Portwood is too much of a risk and embodies too much negative energy.

She would be unlikely to benefit from its program, in other words. So she was denied, and since no other program will take her the judge decided to release her.

With an electronic monitoring bracelet. Classy.

Amber's not out of the woods yet, either. The judge will still require her to apply for residency at another home, although that process could take several months.

Until then, she will remain under home confinement. Until a different drug treatment program accepts her, at least she'll be home. And unable to leave her home.

At least Gary Shirley can visit. Actually, maybe that's not the best idea.

Will Amber Portwood end up back in jail?
