Amber Portwood

Released from Jail

EXCLUSIVE

"Teen Mom" star Amber Portwood has been released from jail -- again -- after a judge gave her a 10 millionth chance.

As we reported, Amber was arrested and thrown in the slammer in Madison County, Indiana last week for skipping a drug court appointment -- and allegedly lying about it.

But sources tell TMZ, the judge took pity on her Thursday -- and decided to release her back to home detention.

The judge told Amber he wants her to continue drug rehab treatment and find a real job.

But if Amber screws up again, she could be thrown out of the drug court program entirely -- at which point she'll face her original prison sentence stemming from her December drug arrest ... a terrifying 5 years behind bars.

The choice is hers.

She should be forced into rehab. A one year stay would do her well instead of being forced to stay at home. This girl is a train wreck. Giving her all these breaks isn't helping her. This is only making her think she can get away with her crap.

This is positive. I hope she takes this chance and thinks of Leah.

Quick, call the Vatican, it's a miracle (rolls eyes). Really, TMZ, do you have two saved files on your desktop, one says Amber Portwood goes to jail and Amber Portwood released from jail? Sheesh.

the only thing thats going to keep her clean is jail time... but the judges dont like doing that because it is expensive... if she stays out of jail and pays for rehab and ****.. it stimulates the economy, and more money for court fees and police

A Lindsay Lohan of the Midwest, minus any talent beyond getting pregnant. Who knew being trashy (which is different from *acting* trashy, would be considered an asset in our culture. Or, what passes for our culture.

"News" about this girl is about as interesting as if I'd posted about my neighbors, the dry cleaner owners. Anyone want to hear about them? Thought not.
