Because of a parole violation, Amber Portwood was sentenced to five years in prison in February. She struck a deal with a judge; she’ll enter a rehab program to avoid prison. Now, five months later, the Teen Mom star has deemed rehab too hard and is begging for prison instead. How does one go from military dreams to begging for prison in less than a week? Read on for all the details.
Amber Portwood is one of the busier Teen Moms. Tanning,
ballet practice with Leah, nail appointments, play dates with Leah, and arrests for domestic violence. She entered rehab, checked out of rehab, lost custody of Leah, and was arrested again for violation of parole and failing to complete her GED.
Amber was arrested last December for a bar fight and drug possession. To avoid five years in prison, she agreed to drug rehab. Last week, she missed a mandatory drug appointment with the courts and was arrested again.

Amber Portwood was released with the stipulation that she would push forward in her drug rehab program and get a real job, meaning one that doesn’t involve TV cameras. Amber returned to court today. TMZ reports that Amber confessed she hasn’t been clean since starting the program, and she wants no part of it.
Seeing no other option, Amber Portwood asked the judge to reinstate her original sentence of five years in prison. ”Amber finally had enough. The system failed her, and that is all I can say,” brother Shawn Portwood tells E! News. Amber will remain behind bars now until her sentencing.
Perhaps she’s vying for a spot on Beyond Scared Straight or Cell Block 6: Female Lock Up? Whatever her intentions are, prison is for sure going to get in the way of her military goals.
How can Amber forsake every chance she’s been given to clean up and come to the conclusion that prison is her best option? Did the system fail her? What do you think RTVM? Sound off in the Comments section below.
