Amber Portwood has been sentenced to five years in prison for a drug arrest that happened back in December.
We can't exactly say we're shocked, but it's still astonishing to witness her fall from grace as reality superstar to prison inmate.
The Teen Mom was in court this morning when the judge handed down his sentence. Her attorney asked the court for a reasonable sentence, but the judge stuck to the terms of the original plea agreement.
Portwood was originally sentenced to jail for five years, but was able to avoid the orange jumpsuit by agreeing to complete a drug rehab program. However, she quickly realized she couldn't handle the rehab and CHOSE the big house instead.
Her case will be referred to the Indiana Department of Corrections therapeutic community program, and any time she's already spent in jail will be taken off her sentence.
We hope she's made the right choice and prison is able to turn her life around for the better.
Best of luck.
