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?

Amber Portwood, who was jailed last week for contempt of court after giving up on rehab, believes prison is the only way to save her life.

That's because her drug addition has gotten so brutal, nothing will keep her from the substances she craves short of locking her in a cell.

Sources say that last week, following her most recent arrest, her (failed) drug test was positive for the opiate-based drug Suboxone.

This is a highly addictive drug similar to Morphine. Portwood admits that she can't control herself around the drug. Not even close, in fact.

She even bought it off the street during a court-ordered drug program, she says, and threw in the towel on rehab because there's no point.

Amber Portwood feels going to prison is the only way to get clean because it will force her to kick the addiction cold turkey and forever.

However illogical this may be, it looks like she'll get her wish. A judge will decide how long she spends there in couple of weeks.

That was fast. Only a week after being released from jail, troubled Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is already back there on contempt of court charges.

The 22-year-old was booked a little after 5 p.m. Thursday.

"Amber finally had enough. The system failed her, and that is all I can say," brother Shawn Portwood said. Yes. The system failed. Good attitude.

"I really feel for my sister. She does not deserve to be there or anything that has happened to her. She is only there because of who she is."

Grade A Screw-Up

Amber Portwood has been struggling with the terms of her probation and was put behind bars a couple weeks ago for failing to appear in court.

She claims that was due to doctor's orders to rest after surgery, but that turned out to actually be not true at all, so officials came and arrested her.

She was released from jail last Thursday, but it was apparently short-lived.

Yesterday, she showed up for her weekly drug court hearing, and basically threw in the towel on the entire rehab thing. Hey, at least she was honest.

Amber told the judge she hadn't stayed clean and will always be a "bad girl," so she'd rather just face prison time than deal with this charade anymore.

She may well get her wish after these recent antics.

The reality star's probation stems from her arrest and subsequent jail time last December for drug possession. She violates probation quite a bit.

Amber Portwood has been released from jail. She got sprung yesterday.

The troubled Teen Mom star was placed back behind bars last week after violating the terms of her probation by failing to appear in an Indiana court.

The 22-year-old allegedly lied about a medical condition to get out of a drug test. Her probation officer called the bluff, asking her doctor directly.

Some very sleepy-eyed Amber Portwood mug shots soon followed.

Amber Screams

How's the reality star feeling now that she's back on the other side?

"OK," Amber told E! News. "Just hustling. I've got a lot on my plate."

Naturally.

According to her brother, Shawn Portwood, Amber's "new goal is to join the military." Yes, apparently he's serious. "She was going to work hard to get her charge reduced," added Shawn. "She's been doing so well."

The Teen Mom trailer would suggest otherwise, but here's hoping.

It's the beginning of the end for Teen Mom's fabulous foursome - Maci Bookout, Farrah Abraham, Amber Portwood and Catelynn Lowell - on MTV this summer.

Though the Teen Mom franchise is sticking around on the network with its second (and soon-to-be third) ensembles, the four who started it all are bowing out.

The final season, premiering next month, promises big things for Amber, Maci, Farrah and Cate. Take a look at the trailer for their upcoming swan song below:

Among this season's new challenges:

  • Amber Portwood's suicide attempt, 911 calls, meltdowns in front of Gary, loss of custody of Leah, and ongoing legal woes (she's in jail right now).
  • Catelynn and her fiance Tyler Baltierra wonder if putting daughter Carly up for adoption really was the right decision ... EVERY SINGLE EPISODE.
  • Farrah moving to Florida with little Sophia.
  • Maci fighting with Ryan Edwards a lot.

It all starts June 12! Yeah, baby!

Amber Portwood is really leaving her mark in our celebrity mug shots gallery.

After the Teen Mom train wreck was jailed for lying about a medical condition to get out of a mandated drug court appearance, she posed for the police cameras once again ... whether she remembers this is a different story.

See below:

In her latest booking photos, Amber can be seen either blinking or looking very tired / strung out. Maybe she just can't bear to look at her life slipping away.

Amber appears on the brink of some serious punishment if the accusations of lying to the court turn out to be true. Either way, she's in pretty bad shape.

Amber told local officials she couldn't show up for her drug test as she was on doctor-ordered bed rest following gall bladder surgery for 2-3 weeks.

A good excuse ... only officials called her bluff and her doctor said no such thing had been ordered. She also pulled a drug-test no show in March.

Hope the food is okay in jail. She could be there awhile.

Troubled Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is back in an Indiana jail after local prosecutors claimed she lied about a medical condition to avoid a drug test.

As part of her probation, Portwood is required to undergo a weekly test and drug court appointment. She was apparently a no-show at last week.

Amber told officials that she was on doctor-ordered bed rest following laparoscopic gall bladder surgery and required to remains so for 2-3 weeks.

A good excuse ... if only it were legitimate.

Teen Mom's Amber Portwood

Amazingly, Amber Portwood's case manager didn't want to take the reality star's word for it. After he spoke to the doctor directly, he learned she lied.

The doctor insisted she WAS well enough to attend her court obligations, and Amber was immediately hauled back to jail for missing the appointment.

Because of the obvious violation of her probation, she's expected to stay behind bars for at least a few weeks until a judge decides the next step.

This isn't her first drug test no-show ... or legal issue stemming from her own lies. She also underreported her income to score government-subsidized housing.

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood has been ordered by a judge to pay money to compensate the real estate company that was suing to evict her. Why?

For lying about her income and qualifying, illegally, for government subsidized housing as a result of that lie. Some people will do anything for a buck.

While Portwood was in jail this winter, a rental company sued her for eviction after they saw she lied about her "low-income" status on her application.

Amber's income in 2010? A modest $280,000.

Gary Shirley, Amber Portwood

Amber and baby daddy Gary Shirley in happier times.

This disqualifies her from subsidized government housing, clearly, and an Indiana judge ruled in the rental company's favor in the case earlier this month.

Amber Portwood not bothering to respond to the suit probably didn't help her cause. She must pay the company back or face further legal consequences.

Otherwise it's back to the slammer, most likely, given that she's been on thin ice with probation as it is. At least jail is free, however. Food for thought.

It looks like Farrah Abraham, Amber Portwood, Catelynn Lowell and Maci Bookout will be calling it a career after the upcoming fourth season of Teen Mom.

MTV confirmed this in a statement Friday. If there's any confusion this means the fourth and final season for just the cast members mentioned above.

Teen Mom 2, featuring Jenelle Evans, Leah Messer, Chelsea Houska and Kailyn Lowry just aired its second season and may still receive a third on MTV.

The Teen Mom Stars

Meanwhile, there will be a Teen Mom 3, with the cast selected from members of the all-new 16 & Pregnant cast ... everybody clear on all this now?

"Season 4 will be the final season of Teen Mom with Maci, Catelynn, Amber and Farrah," MTV tells Us. "They will continue to be a part of our MTV family."

"We're thankful to these brave young women for sharing their stories and helping to make a positive impact on teen pregnancy prevention."

There's no specific date set for Season Four's premiere.

Sad to see the original stars retire? Amber Portwood's police run-ins should keep her in the news, but will we ever hear from Maci, Farrah and Cate again?
