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.

problem with these bleeding heart judges... they say... "I'm going to give you one last chance and then it's jail for you if you screw up." and when they screw up again they say, "I'm going to give you one last chance and then it's jail for you if you screw up." Then they screw up again and the judge says... "I'm going to give you one last chance... etc" What is going to stop these out of control morons from screwing up when the consequence is "one more chance"?

Funny how Lindsey Lohan can do all sorts of crime, short of murder, and she gets off the hook REPEATEDLY. This girl seems to have no support system emotionally whatsoever. I bet none of the people who made nasty comments here have even ever watched the show. She is being threatened with FIVE YEARS IN JAIL for missing an appointment; yet I have to read the SICKENING sweet reports, VALENTINES TMZ continually puts out on their girl Lohan, who truly has a history of criminal behavior. THE ONLY JUSTICE IN THE USA IS FOR THE VERY RICH.

Too bad Blohan didn't pull all her sh!t in Indiana. It would have been quite a different turn of events, I think!
