Amber Portwood Sentenced to Five YEARS in Prison

by at . Comments

Amber Portwood has been sentenced to five years in prison after throwing in the towel on rehab and asking an Indiana judge to reimpose her sentence.

Guess he took her request to heart.

Portwood had been on probation following a December drug arrest, but was jailed for contempt of court this spring after failing to show up for a drug test.

Portwood was in court when the judge reimposed the sentence of five years in prison. Her attorney asked for leniency, but the judge was unmoved.

Not that he had a choice, he said. Due to her relapse, he said he had no choice but to enforce the terms of her plea agreement from this winter.

Portwood's five-year prison sentence was previously stayed on the condition she complete a drug rehabilitation program. That did not happen.

The Teen Mom train wreck lied about a medical condition to get out of drug testing, then gave up on rehab and asked to go to prison instead.

The judge said he would refer Amber to the Indiana Department of Corrections therapeutic community program - incarceration-based rehab.

Amber Portwood will be given credit for time served in jail, which is considerable, but nothing approaching five years. See you in 2016 or 2017 girl?

Sometimes in order for someone to really change somthing like this needs to happen. I feel for amber regardless of what anyone thinks. Gary isn't exactl an angel, he did provoke her a lot and did not try to help her at all. This is the best thing for her and will make a better person and a mom. Stay strong amber

anybody that says that she did nothing harmful to her child is a moron! She neglects her, abuses her and shows no compassion toward her! ( which is, yet again ABUSE!) Maybe you think it is okay to treat a helpless child like that. You are effin stupd! If you think thats okay you are the worst parent. If you want to get "technical", she in one episode, blames Gary for getting her pregnant and said that she hated him for it. She is selfish. She is immature. Nobody is perfect, but when you have kids you better do everything to protect, shelter, take care of and LOVE them! She wasnt ready and didnt want to be ready. regardless if it was for herself or for Leah, she made the right decision for Leah. She will not have to deal with this from her mother and Gary is an awesome parent and she can work on herself. It doesnt matter why she did it. she just did it and now the family can start to heal.

What she never did anything harmful to her child.. Apparently you missed the earlier episodes before Leah was walking and as she started walking.. Amber was always putting her in her crib, throwing her in her crib and what about when she says shut up Leah God stop crying.. If she can treat her child this way on screen imagine the treatment she received when the cameras shut off.. Leah is much better off without her.. Gary seems to care alot more about Leah's welfare and he would be better off finding Leah a better more attentive mother.. what good mother would leave her child for five years willingly but couldn't face being away from her for 30-60 days..

I raise a son from a drug addict mother and AMBER does not love her child!! She loves her partying and flirting life style. Shes high on the show and looks like such a loser! Grow up u dumb azz. Its not about you anymore, its supposed to be about LEAH now, but unfortunately your still self centered! Anyone woman or man but mostly woman who loves her child like she says she does will give up ANYTHING for their child. You deserve everything you get from this day on!!!

Her violence may have been towards gary but it was while her daughter was there..you don't think its bad that she cusses, argues, and hits infront of her child? If not, somethings wrong with you. I been done that addiction road before. She was given plenty chances to quit but she didn't want too, she kept doing it. If you love your child, you should want to stop and do whatever it takes. Instead she did everything she wasn't suppose to do knowing she would eventually loose her kid. That is not a loving and carrying mother. She knew she would get 5 years, so she decided to give up and be put in prison. She knew she would not see her child for a long time all because she couldn't suck it up and quit for the sake of her child. Yeah, I am pretty damn sure

also on top of that. alot of stuff u read online from this stuff is not 100 percent true watch some more reality shows. and see how much they lie. people who write stuff just does it for money they will write anything just to get it. just every needs to get off her back, u all got ur own family and friends if u dont know the real truth dont talk shit about her. just leave this girl alone. she dont deserve more hate towards her she needs to get better not keep on listening to this shit. thanks. also go ahead talk shit to me case im sticking up for her. but im just done hearing this stuff. she still spent time with her kid she made a effort she faught for her daughter. so until every1 knows the truth again leave her alone. get a life.
