MTV ‘Teen Mom’ Sentenced to 5 Years in Prison
Posted on Jun 12, 2012 in Celebrity Justice, National Issues
The Huffington Post reported today that one of the stars of its Teen Mom series, Amber Portwood, has been sentenced to 5 years in an Indiana Correctional Facility.
The sentence comes as the result of a plea deal which placed Portwood on probation following a 2011 drug arrest. Evidently, Portwood was unable to complete her court-mandated drug rehabilitation program.
Portwood had previously been charged with three domestic violence felonies against her ex-fiance Gary Shirley which occurred while their daughter was present. These charges had already placed Portwood on 2 years probation which she violated after the 2011 drug arrest.
This news serves as a reminder that drug problems and domestic violence issues permeate across all tiers of social and demographic strata. If you or someone you know are arrested for drug charges or domestic violence, it is important to hire a competent criminal defense attorney to protect your rights—-contact Bloom Legal 24/7 at 504-599-9997 or online at http://www.bloomlegal.com
