Levi Johnston aka ‘Ricky Hollywood’ got some bad news this week from Anchorage, Alaska. The 19-year-old aspiring model learned that his mother Sherry Johnston is heading to prison.

She received a three year sentence on Friday after pleading guilty in August to one count of possession with intent to deliver the painkiller OxyContin. Five other felony counts were dropped in a plea deal that saved her from spending an additional two years behind bars.

The 43-year-old will serve her sentence at Hiland Mountain Correctional Center in Eagle River. Her attorney, Rex Butler, has filed paperwork with the Department of Corrections, requesting that his client be allowed into the ankle-monitoring program, that would allow her to serve her sentence under home arrest in Wasilla.

Son Levi was at the hearing to lend his support during his mother’s sentencing on Friday, having wrapped up his Playgirl photo shoot in Los Angeles.
