It looks like troubled Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is headed for prison once again – although this time she’ll be behind bars for longer than a week.
TMZ reports that on Tuesday (June 5), Amber appeared in an Anderson, Indiana courthouse before a judge who decided to reimpose her original five-year prison sentence following a December 2011 drug arrest.
Instead of serving time, the former MTV star was initially able to enter a court-ordered drug rehabilitation. However, when Amber chose to give up the program, the judge concluded that he had no choice but to reinstate his original sentencing.
In mid-May, Amber – who is mom to 3-year-old daughter Leah – was thrown in jail for a week for skipping out on one of her program’s mandatory drug tests and then lying about why she couldn’t make it.
Citing a “medical condition,” Amber told the court she was recovering from gallbladder surgery and was under strict doctor’s orders to rest and recuperate at home for at least two weeks.
When prosecutors checked in with her doctor, the specialist admitted the reality star had made the instructions up.
