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?

Prison can either be good or bad for you. It depends on how you will conduct yourself. I never did understand why anyone
would use drugs & burden others. Only thing I can say...
do drugs you'll be dead sooner than later.

This chick is a hot ass mess! First of all, she ends up pregnant as a teen, then mtv employs her because she is a pregnant teen, and now according to society and the media, she has a problem. Duh! I guess no one saw the issues before all the fame. This girl was out of control way before the drugs, and way before mtv. I'm not suprised her ass is in prison by no means. Folks should realize, this stuff happens everyday, not just to the mtv pregnant puppets.

Good Lord..people must just read the headline instead of the whole article. She isn't going for just failing a drug test. READ THE ARTICLE! She went because SHE GAVE UP! She is a complete moron and "couldn't handle" the simple probation tasks she was given. Which in other words most likely she meant "I can't handle it because I can't pass a drug test and can't do rehab because I don't want to quit yet." She deserves every bit of it. She knew what she was getting into when she broke the law and when she decided to tell the judge to just give her time. Maybe she will straighten up now. I feel bad for her daughter but also feel better that she doesn't have that train wreck taking care of her.

drug addiction is a disease, in order to defeat it you need postive ppl in your life, ppl that will help you when you think you can't overcome it.... ppl that won't judge you for all the mistakes you have made with this drug addiction. I feel so bad for Leah she is going to miss her mommy, woman that carried her for 9 months before bringin her in this world. The only woman she calls mommy.... I hope Amber sees these mistakes she is makin and decides to make the choice to take a chance, and CHANGE her life for the little Angel she and Gary made.... Just remember ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE YOU....
