Amber Portwood: Released From Prison!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood has been released from an Indiana prison after almost a year and a half. She was originally sentenced to five years.

In mid-2012, the troubled reality TV personality famously begged a judge to put her behind bars, rather than sentence her to probation and drug court.

The judge obliged, and sentenced her to prison for violating probation in her drug possession case. Amber Portwood claimed it would be better for her.

Now, the 24-year-old MTV star has paid her debt to society. She walked out a free woman this morning after just 17 months, due to good behavior.

Ambs also completed two unspecified prison courses while serving her time.

Wearing a grey sweatsuit and a smile, the mother of one says the first thing she wants to do now that she's on the outside "get something good to eat."

Indiana Department of Corrections? Not known for their gourmet cuisine.

It's unclear what her status will be regarding custody of Leah, her daughter with Gary Shirley, but we wish her the best in the next phase of her recovery.
