A court official tells officially that a judge will decide if Amber is ‘to be held or released’ from custody on Dec. 23.

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood may just make it home in time for Christmas. A Madison County Indiana circuit court official tells exclusively that Amber is set to head to court on Dec. 23 and a judge will decide if she has to stay in jail or if she can go home.

A Madison County jail spokesperson reveals to us that Amber was booked yesterday, Dec. 19, for a probation violation and does not have a set bond — which means she has to stay in jail until a judge allows her out.

Amber will be in court on Friday for “an initial hearing through video court” concerning her probation violation charge, shares the court official. “That’s where they’ll address what’s claimed [in the violation], let her know what her penalties could be from finding of guilt from it and if she’s going to be held or released.”

On Nov. 21, Amber’s probation officer filed a paper with the court alleging that Amber violated most of the terms of her probation.

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.
