Amber’s good behavior got her out of jail nearly four years ahead of her sentence — but she’ll have to stay on her best behavior to keep out of jail, and have a chance at gaining joint custody of her daughter! The ‘Teen Mom’ revealed that her post-release goal is to gain joint custody of her girl — and here’s what she’ll have to do to get it.
Amber Portwood will be on parole following her Nov. 4. release from Indiana’s Rockville Correctional Facility. Douglas Garrison, the Chief Communications Officer for the Indiana Dept. of Corrections, revealed that there are several conditions that come along with her early release — and any violation would send her back to jail — and away from her nearly 5-year-old daughter Leah.
Amber Portwood Parole: What She Has To Do To Stay Out Of Jail & Get Custody
The conditions of her early jail release are that “Amber will have to report to a parole officer,” Indiana Dept. of Corrections officer Douglas Garrison told In Touch Weekly. “The parole officer will make sure she finds employment, that she is living in an appropriate situation and that she is staying clean. Amber will have to check in a couple of times a month with her parole officer. If she violates anything, she could go back to jail.”
Amber Portwood Subject To Random Drug Tests
There are about twenty different stipulations to Amber’s parole agreement, but most importantly, “Amber will be subject to random drug tests, and she is not allowed to live with felons,” Garrison asserted.
If Amber is able to keep sober and pass her spontaneous drug tests, hopefully she will be able to move forward in trying for joint custody!
What do YOU think, HollyMoms? Do you think that Amber will be able to keep sober and out of trouble?
