Congratulations sis. I am so happy that you are finally being released. You did everything you needed to do to get out long before 5 years

When a fan asked if Amber was being released that day, he said, “not today but fairly soon.” Amber is reportedly being released on Nov. 6 2013, according to a statement obtained from the jail by Wet Paint.

I received an email and text last night by the IDOC [Indiana Department of Correction] about her release but wanted to keep it secret bc that is what Amber wanted.

Amber has a 4-year-old daughter, Leah.

On Teen Mom 2, Amber hasn’t made a very good life for her daughter. 4 years later, Amber still has not turned her life around after shes made many promises to do so. Will jail finally be the turning point for her….?
