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.

The Court System wants her to stay addicted and repeatedly revolve through the justice system, because that is how they keep themselves [cops, lawyers, judges, clerks] ...in paychecks for themselves. It's the same people that keep repeating crimes and revolving through the courts, it's not a whole new batch of criminals everyday. It's a sad day when criminals have to ask to be jailed in order to get clean from an addiction. Where are all the support services, since Americans give up about half of their lifetime earnings to taxes. What are politicians spending all the money on, because they sure as hell are not spending it on Americans.

It's about damn time! This little brat has been acting like she's HOT SH*T ever since she was on 16 & Pregnant. SO glad someone put her back in her spot. I feel bad for the kid but at least now maybe she'll have a chance without her dead beat mother to bring her down.

What a dumb ass! What's really sad is Hollywood is potentially losing a great actress.

What an idiot. Apparently she didn't know that the alternative of going to jail meant the reinstatement of the full sentence! The nitwit hadn't discussed it with her attorney--who would have told her that--before speaking with the judge.

Now if only they could find a way to put Gary away, then hopefully Leah might have a shot in life.

I love drugs, they help to weed out the weak members of society that we help drag along with welfare and such. This girl sucks and should never have been on TV for becoming a pregnant teen. Have a good day! www.jvincemusic.com
