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.

MTV should be held responsible for creating this sad, sad situation.
Good job MTV you are partially responsible for a child growing up without her mother. Are you join to pay for her schooling and mental health issues?
Of course not...your producers made millions and now this child will suffer for your ratings.

This is really sad. A mother that would give up 5 years of her life and abandon her child isn't being responsible she's being outright selfish. I don't want to hear how she knew she couldn't kick her drug habit so she chose jail. Heck we all know anything in life worth having takes hard work, she's a coward and took the easy way out. What about Leah? Is this really a new found way to kick a drug habit? Is anyone thinking about about the hundreds of thousands of dollars that we are going to spend to house Amber? This was a pitiful excuse to kick her habit, I say the courts should take her parental rights and put Leah in protective custody. She should never se her child again. Shame on the people on here that are praising this coward for giving up on her child.

Anyone who watched even one episode of the show knows Amber is beyond lazy. All she does is lay in bed, watch tv and eat so it is no surprise that she took the easy way out. Most likely she thinks she really is a "star" and therfore thought she would get treated like Lindsay and just do a day in jail and then be set free. A few years to think about her life will do her good. Maybe she will get off her fat ass and get her GED while she is doing time.
