MTV’s Teen Mom reality star Amber Portwood may think that she can do everything she pleases with her life, but this is not true. Everything has a priced, and this is what the teen star is now finding. Her career will be in danger because of the probation.
The probation is about getting a 9 to 5 job, and she would need to do this if she ever wanted to stay away from jail sentenced.
The judge had concluded that the reality star got banned from filming her show. She is going to be sent to a halfway house for up to three years.
Additionally, the court order does not allow her to appear on the show. This assures the court that she will not get featured in the show.
To further signal the court's intention of having no right to appear on the show, the adjudicator contacted MTV, and the network assured they will not hold it against her if she can not do her job as a reality show star.
Portwood, was present in court yesterday in connection with her latest drug arrest, and details got hammered for a plea deal in order to keep her out of jail.
She will have to complete her drug rehabilitation while living at Sister 2 Sister Ministries, a halfway house, serving women that come out of prison.
However, since they could not evaluate her until next Monday or Tuesday, she stays behind bars at Madison County Jail.
Circuit Court Judge David Happe told Amber how she understood her. However, letting her go is the last thing that they could do for her.
She has the option of coming in and going out as she pleases at the house. All she needs to do is to let the staff know where she is heading.
Under the drug court program, she is required to undergo daily screenings, fulfill treatment obligations, and attend drug court weekly.
Once the star failed the program then she will be jailed for five years. The sentenced was non-negotiable.
The news comes out after she got pictured in a prison jumpsuit and shackles right after getting sentenced to five years in prison earlier this month.
The star got chained by the ankles and wrists as she appeared in Madison County Court, in her hometown of Anderson, Indiana. Under a plea deal, the reality TV star entered guilty pleas to one count of Class D felony possession of a controlled substance and one count of parole probation violation.
However, if she completes the terms of the Madison County Drug Court program the case against her is going to be dismissed.
However, the bad side about this probation is that she would be sent to prison if she failed her program.
Portwood told Judge Happe that she know it would take a lot of patience and time, but that is one thing that she got many.
