Judge to Amber Portwood

Get Your Ass in Rehab

2/6/2012 8:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Amber Portwood in orange prison stripes"Teen Mom" star Amber Portwood won't be heading to prison ... yet -- because a judge just gave the MTV reality star one last chance to clear her name ... by entering rehab.

TMZ broke the story ... Amber struck a plea deal with prosecutors in her drug case last month -- a deal that would allow Amber to avoid a 5-year prison sentence by completing a court-mandated drug rehabilitation program. An Indiana judge approved the deal today.

If Amber successfully completes the Madison County Drug Court program, her drug case will be entirely dismissed -- but if she screws up, she'll be thrown in the slammer.

As we first reported, Amber was arrested in December for drug possession and failing to provide a urine sample (a stipulation of her probation).

Amber will remain in custody pending a full evaluation by the Drug Court team -- which we're told could take up to two weeks. Once accepted into the program, the judge will release her.

If she goes to jail, then MTV will just get another dumb teenager who can't close her legs to ruin her (and her child's) life.
