'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.

Apparently some of the commenters here didn't bother to read the story. She's not going to jail because she didn't set up a college fund or get her GED. She's going to jail because she violated the terms of her probation. She already got a 2 year sentence for hitting her baby's dad, but agreed to do these things (college find, GED, no alcohol) if it meant not going to jail. Then she didn't do them, so guess what? Jail it is. Seriously, read the story before commenting, people. And btw, she doesn't live in California, so the overcrowding there will have no effect on her.
