Amber Portwood Probation

Amber’s probation officer claims that Amber has failed to adhere to MOST of the terms of her probation.

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood just can’t stay on track. The 21-year-old is now facing a two year jail sentence for violating the terms of her probation.

Amber’s probation officer says that Amber has basically failed to do anything that the court has asked of her, according to the court paper that has obtained.

The notice states that Amber failed “to behave well in society” by taking “substantial steps to commission of the offenses of battery and public intoxication” on Nov. 18. She has yet to get her GED or complete six months of “anger control and evaluation classes.” Amber still needs to pay the fees of her probation, and reportedly has not created an “IRS qualified educational fund” for her 3-year-old daughter Leah in the amount of $10,000.

Amber was initially placed on probation after she was found guilty on charges of Domestic Battery for beating up her daddy Gary Shirley.

The probation officer filed the notice of violation on Nov. 21, just days after Amber allegedly got into an explosive fight with a random stranger at IHOP on Nov. 18. “The probation department has alleged that Amber has taken substantial steps to commit a new crime of battery and public intoxication,” a court official explains to us.

Amber is to appear in court on Jan. 13 when a judge will decide how to proceed concerning her violations.

On Dec. 14, the Department of Child Services dropped their case against Amber and Gary. Gary’s attorney Jeff Lockwood told us at the time that as a result, Gary has custody of their daughter Leah and Amber will have visitation rights.

Jeff believes that Amber’s new violations “won’t effect the custody agreement.”

“Gary feels terrible. He doesn’t want anything bad to happen to Amber,” Jeff says. “But there is nothing he can do.”

Lock this fat ugly blame-everyone-but-herself pig up for the rest of her probation (MAKE her get an education since she WON’T for her daughter BEFORE she’s released)and maybe, just maybe she’ll start coming to grips with the reality that she is NOT a star, she’s just an abusive slag…if she hits on Gary like that WTH will she do to Leah when she starts disagreeing with her? Glad Gary got full custody. Amber can’t or WON’T more likely, be responsible for herself

While she does need to make better choices in her life, I can sympathize with her being bipolar. I was diagnosed after my son was born 9 yrs ago and it makes me want to prove the stereotypes wrong and she doesn’t appear to want to do that yet. She needs better people around her that support her to help keep her on the right track and she will be fine. Prioritize Amber!

This girl needs a more structure setting . She has proven that she is not capable of being a productive citizen on the streets and can follow through w/her very easy probational rules…

Does she ever think of her daughter before she does this dumb crap? I don’t feel bad for her at all and I think Leah is definitely better off with Gary.
