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.

See this is what happens when we have programs out there glorifying our young people being parents way to early. The only one who is going to pay is that precious little girl. MTV, wake up and QUIT televising this program!

This is a very sad story. It is also sad that the majority of people judge before they even attempt to understand. Addiction is a disease and Amber is sick. Do some research if you don't understand. Obviously she's made poor choices and I'm not excusing those choices but have some sympathy. She needs get treatment for her disease so she can recover and be there for her child.

Amber has a daughter not a son. She needs to get the help to change her mental attitude. I am glad she is going for five years. That long in jail will open her eyes as to what she has done.

Poor girl I believe that it was what she saw during her childhood. I think her parents were alcoholics, even though she is responsible for her actions now.If she doesn't change her ways, her child will be just like her.

Amber;

You are nothing but a drama queen. I cannot stand the way you act, especially in front of your daughter, and Gary. Your daughter and Gary deserve better than u. So u went to Rehab? Looks like it did not work for u, and all u do is use the people you love, and need to work on your anger. I have bi-polar, 2, but I do not go around and hit my husband, daughter, or granddaughter. You got exactly what u had coming to u, and I hope when you are in jail for the 5 years u are doing, wait until a woman prisoner gets right in your face. I am thankful u are off of Teen Mom, as u deserve exactly what u got! Gayle
