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.

She is such an idiot! Why on earth would someone choose to go to prison? She is going to get her ass handed to her in there. Jail is totally different than prison. The first thing the inmates are going to say is "oh here comes Amber, she thinks she is a big bad ass, being on tv." Inmates will HATE her b/c of her fame (if that's what you want to call it). I give her a couple weeks, then she will be begging to get out.

What did she do to deserve a five year sentence?? I mean, I don't see any "too big to fail" banking CEOs doing any time at all, and they stole trillions of dollars. What did this girl do that was so heinous?

Or maybe the judge is tired of people with a little bit of money and noteriaty making the justice system look like a joke. She's had her fair share of chances to get clean, if not for her for her daughter and she chose not to. So guess what jail is the next best place, not out in public still breaking the law. I know someone who was on drugs for years and her kids were taken away from her and raised by other family members. She couldn't stop for herself or her kids, but a couple years in jail and she's on the straight and narrow and has been for about three years now. So sometimes jail/prison is what it takes. Also @ Amber's young age maybe a couple years in jail (cause she probably wont have to do the whole 5) will be her wake up call.

I guarantee when she sobered up in jail she regretted turning herself in, instead of being free and sober with her family, daughter, and friends. Now after receiving 5 years in the big house she must really be kicking herself thinking about how stupid of a decision she made.

After seeing the way she screamed and carried on in front of that cute little girl, and was such a bully thinking she was such a bad ass for beating up on a guy who had the balls enough not to hit her back...well done. good call judge!

go home!    

She cares about no one. She doesn't care about Leah. All she cares about is that she is too lazy to get her act together and get a job. Now she can sit on her ass for 5 years. Perfect.
