'Teen Mom' Amber Portwood: Facing 5 Years In Jail Now — Oh No

Thu, March 8, 2012 10:00pm EST by 28 Comments
Amber Portwood Jail

Amber’s back in trouble AGAIN — this time it’s because she failed to take a required drug test!

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood was sentenced to five years in prison after her December drug arrest, but the judge said he would dismiss the case if she completes a drug program, according to TMZ.com. On March 5, Amber failed to take a routine daily drug test, and now she must face the consequences!

Amber was progressing until she failed to provide a urine sample during a routine drug test while serving time on home detention. Sources say she simply couldn’t go at the time, but no urine sample still counts as a failed test no matter what.

During her weekly check-up with the judge on March 8, she’ll have to answer for her failed test. It’s up to the judge to decide if she’ll be locked up for her original five-year sentence or not.

HollywoodLife.com reached out to Amber’s attorney Evan Broderick, and he said he can’t comment on the situation at this time.

UPDATE: Amber met with the judge, but the court told HollywoodLife.com that they cannot reveal the results.

But TMZ.com reports that Amber is NOT going to jail for 5 years after all! Not only did Amber not provide a urine sample, but she also missed an AA meeting recently! But even though she’s not going to locked up, she’s not totally off the hook — Amber has to do 30 extra days of daily drug testing and she must re-read the drug court handbook and write a 500-word report.

She should’ve done the 5 yrs behind bars. I don’t care who the heck she is. Just because she’s a “supposedly” celebrity (hence the quotes) doesn’t mean she gets special treatment. If that were me, I’d be doing the 5 yrs. so y not her. Shes garbage and I don’t care what her situation is, he made her bed and now she should lie in it

I agree. She’s so worried about her ugly looks. Her family sides with her. Gary takes care of that baby. So does HIS mother. Her own mother can’t trust her. If she holds that phone any closer, she’ll swallow it. EVERYBODY HAS ONE THESE DAYS! She’ll digest it. It will fit. All you ever see her do is… eat, swear, or beat people. She needs to be off the streets. The child needs to be brought up with Gary and his mom. She’s so much more of a child with them. SO SAD!

If she would have never flaunted her teen pregnancy on a tv show, let alone on MTV, she would never be in this situation. I know a lot of “parents” who have done worse things in there life and who use drugs daily and thierry children are fine because they are responsible enough to not allow anything bad around their kids! This comes down to her being careless and irresponsible! I hope Leah’s father has perminent custody because you can tell that man is a teddy bear n would do anything n everything to make his baby girl happy!

Thank goodness for this show. If the cameras were there and she beat him, IMAGINE if the cameras WEREN’T THERE! PLEASE! This could be a WHOLE other conversation. She honestly believes in her mental mind that she’s a good mom. Watch the shows. She has the kid…she’s a mess and so is the house. Gary has the kid……..she has clean clothes, hair is done, and she’s being a CHILD!

I think she is getting off to easy and should have to go back to jail for at least 2 years of her sent. She is never going to learn.
She is only getting away with this because she is on teen mom and that is not setting a good example for the show for one and it is not ever going to help Amber get better.
That poor baby continues daily to pay the price for her moms dumb choices in life and Leah will probably grow up making the same choices unless someone finally gets a little bit harder on Miss Amber and straightens her up so Leah has some fighting chance.

In my opinion I was a teen mom I didn’t get a show I had to go on welfare I believe these girls should not be getting any money for this it doesn’t show how it really is to struggle when you are a teen mom. Maybe then others will see how it really is and maybe then there will be less teens getting pregnant.

This is why “Teen Moms” shouldn’t even be on TV. She probably bought those drugs with the sarary she makes from the TV show. Some of the other comments I read…she obviously has 12 year old follows. The whole concept is disgusting.

Sorry but she should be in jail. Should have been a long time ago, she’s to selfish to be a.good mom. .. On to the next.. She needs to be removed from teen.mom. Shes abusive to her man why not hr kid when camaras.arent around… She needs a lesson from Maci on how to be a good mom.. Her and Farrah for that matter. All that girl cares about is being famous..

As someone serving probation with the treat of 12 years in prison over my head I find this disgusting.
This woman is being treated so much better than I was it litterally makes me sick. If I fail any drug test at any time I will go to a state prison for 12 years and all I got caught with was marijuana…
Unless there has been some major change in the system that I am being run through, I think she should be thrown into a jail cell for at least 30 days as a warning and then for her full sentence if she screws up again…

Y is this chic so important that she wouldnt have to back up her jail time that was suspended only if she followed the rules of her probation? The judge who sentenced her should stick by his ruling and if he dont he isnt a very good judge but more a coward who cant even be relied on to keep his word so y would anyone he sentenced care or follow his rulings? Its ok to make mistakes and accept your punishment but when you make the same mistakes and dont show any signs of doin whats right then you deserve to get locked u. This girl dont deserve any kind of attention or freedom definently dont deserve to have her child…What a waste of space and air!!

Of course she got off easy! No celebrity, A list or Z list ever gets real consequences/punishment. Unless it’s murder… Oh wait. I stand corrected, O.J. Simpson got away with murder…

How many more chances are they going to give this girl? Drink some damn water and then pee. It’s a DAILY test, so she knows when she is going to have to pee, so why not drink a lot beforehand? Oh, I know why, because she knew she would fail the test. Is anyone really surprised?

No, I dont! If she is an addict, she needs treatment, not an institution…drug court is appropriate in my eyes, and a judges…

Not for nothing but if you can’t go ya can’t go. You can’t force yourself to go. But they could have taken a blood test from her because that would show the same stuff. The blood test can go back further then piss can.

the sample can be small… i’d venture to guess that most people could get SOMETHING out even within 15 minutes of using the bathroom. the story is suspicious, to say the least.

I believe theres a reason she “simply couldn’t go at the time” it dont take much to provide enough for them to do the drug test and I’m sure they wouldnt have minded waiting a couple of minutes if needed be..I like amber and hate to see her have to serve time, but shes no better than any of us out here and if it were one of us, we would have to serve the time !
