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.

That is such bull****. The only reason they are doing this is out of jealousy & because the Judge was covering his own ass because he supplies drugs to half of anderson & muncie. He know Amber has stuff on him & he wants to put her away so he doesnt get found out. Maybe his wife should know about the young girls he is sleeping with. Oh man this is crap. Thats why I left indiana years ago

everybody makes mistakes in life its sad to see these ignorant people judge amber like if she' s the only person in the world with drug problems... if you take a look back to all of teen mom episodes you'll realize that gary has this thing of trying to control amber by using leah... hes an insecure person manipulator and an A-h0le dont judge a book by its cover im sure amber also has alot of good and smart in her she's got her own problems just like all of us human beings.... no matter how much all these people that dont even know her talk trash about her im sure that cute little princess of leah will LOVE her mother no matter what... nobodys perfect and there is no perfect mother were all the same and we all go through the same raising a child god bless u all
