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?
