If Amber Portwood is able to go through an entire court-mandated rehab program, she won’t have to serve five years in prison. Do you think she’ll be able to do it?

Teen Mom‘s Amber Portwood isn’t exactly known for her amazing track record. However, the court is giving her another shot to stay out of the pen, reports TMZ.

The reality TV star struck a plea deal that locks her up in prison for a whopping five years following being arrested last month. However, there’s a way out of that…

First, she had to plead guilty to one count of possession of a controlled substance and one count of probation violation.

“[Also], according to the deal, law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Amber can stay out of the big house … provided she completes a court-mandated drug rehabilitation program,” the story says.

The rehab would be through the Madison Drug Court program, but if she doesn’t make it or screws up for any reason, she’ll have to serve her five years in prison. The judge will decide whether or not to approve the deal during her next hearing Feb. 6.
