'Teen Mom' Amber Portwood

Facing 2 Years in Jail

for Being a Crappy Person

12/15/2011 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Teen Mom Amber Portwood
"Teen Mom" Amber Portwood could end up in the slammer for 2 years after allegedly violating virtually ALL of the terms of her probation -- including staying sober in public ... and not beating people up.

According to court docs filed in Indiana, obtained by TMZ, Amber's probation officer claims the 21-year-old former "Teen Mom" committed a laundry list of violations:

-- "Failure to behave well in society" -- namely, drinking too much and hitting a person at a restaurant last month
-- Failure to obtain a GED
-- Failure to complete 6 months of anger control evaluation and classes
-- Failure to pay probation fees
-- Failure to set up a $10,000 college fund for her baby daughter

Amber was sentenced to 2 years in jail after being convicted of beating the crap out of her baby daddy Gary Shirley -- but the sentence was suspended on the condition that she do all of the above.

Amber's due back in court for a hearing in January, when she'll have the opportunity to explain herself. If the judge doesn't buy it, he or she could throw the book at Amber.

Calls to Portwood have not been returned.

Come on Amber, do it! You know you've thought about it, so just go through with it. Don't worry, no one will miss you.

Perhaps she is a crappy person, but some of the stipulations the Judge placed are NOT legal. Like requiring a GED or setting up a college fund. These are a violation of civil rights and she needs to contact the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union). When I got divorced and the Judge tried to limit where I could and could not move to in court papers, I had it removed because it is not legal to require someone live in such and such place. ACLU was all over that like a bad habit.

Wait , we can go to jail for not getting a GED and not seting up a collage fund for our children ... OMG allot of us are doomed then ... if that makes us bad parents , I know quite a few people who would go to jail for one or both of thoes reasons , Getting a GED and setting up a collage fund for your child seem to be butting into a parents lifestyle , moreso then courts should be allowed to do , I can understand not being intoxacaited in public and compleating anger mangment courses , as probation requitements but really ? a ged and 10,000$ for her collage fund ... even parents who are well off either dont have a collage fund set up or even have enough money to do so and pay bills , and pay for child care , etc... so how does that have anything to do with being a good parent .?? i dont understand that at all

My feelings on Indiana CPS system is not good. I have a step-daughter that is in it. She has alot of mental issuses and their system and the mental health systems in Indiana is a total failure. When a person has mental issuses the first thing they tell you is "THIS IS NOT YOUR FAULT". If that is true no person should be charged for any crime, No matter what it is. It takes years to get on the rights meds. I should know. I've been under the care of a shrink since 1995 and it's now all that fun, but if it wasn't for him I would not be here. Hopeful the judge will have all the facts before he make a decision on her.

There's a problem here    

I think it's great that a teen guttersnipe, whore and breeder gets to be a celebrity because she couldn't respect herself and keep her massive thighs shut.

Putting this girl in jail will accomplish nothing but turning her into a bigger piece of trash than she is now.

Where did the other half of her eyebrows go?

Dont worry about going to jail. I'd be more worried by the fact shes missing half an eyebrow.

And "Failure to pluck her eyebrows correctly"

This is one of the first truly, "right on the money," headings that I have read on TMZ! Despite the fact that TMZ has to come up with catchy commentary headlines,this one could not have been more accurate while still delivering Tmz's razor sharp wit! Good work! :)
