Amber Portwood

Sentenced to 5 Years

In Prison ... Again

6/5/2012 8:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0605_amber_portwood_01
"Teen Mom" star Amber Portwood has been sentenced to five long years in the big house ... again -- after asking an Indiana judge to reimpose her sentence, stemming from a December drug arrest.

Portwood was in court this morning when the judge reimposed the sentence. Her attorney asked for leniency, but the judge was unmoved ... insisting he had no choice but to enforce the terms of Amber's plea agreement.

Portwood's five-year prison sentence was previously stayed on the condition she complete a drug rehabilitation program -- but as we first reported, Portwood gave up on the program ... and asked to go to prison instead.

The judge said he would refer Amber to the Indiana Department of Corrections therapeutic community program -- an incarceration-based treatment program.

Portwood will be given credit for time served in jail.

Wow. What a shame. No one would choose 5 years in prison if they didn't have a serious addiction. Sure seems like the Judge could have come up with a better way to help this girl. How is this helping anyone? Maybe she'll kick the addiction in there but at what cost? Is this really who is in prison? Very sad.

That is crazy to go to jail for five years for doing some drugs. Everyone I know would be gone!
She should have sold some kilos. A kid from school killed someone and got five years.
This is crazy!

So now, instead of getting her ass kicked by a boyfriend that looks like a fat lesbian, she gets to have her ass kicked by authentic fat lesbians.

with time served, she'll be out in about two years. Hopefully, this spiral will stop and she will grow up.

Cheers to the judge for following through. Jeers to Amber for being an embarrassment to her fellow Hoosiers & a horrible role model to her daughter. Why these whores have a "career" is beyond me. Please go back to music videos MTV.

Its very sad that the only way she can escape the addiction is to opt for prison. It shows just how addictive prescription medication is. Its a tradgedy, and it takes lifes everyday!!!!!!! I feel sorry for her, but commend her for being brave enough to do prison time to get her life back... I agree she is attempting to save her life. Good Luck indeed Amber!

What a sorry excuse for a human being! 5 years is not enough. She's had so man opportunities to straighten up and she prefers 5 years in prison...okaaay! Hopefully her poor daughter will never have anything to do with her! She's just a sick human being.

No doubt the residents of Indiana will be excited to foot the incarceration bill of approx $175,000 over 5 years. Money well spent? Jail should not be an option - only house arrest and community service.
