Amber Portwood is a free woman no more.
E! News confirms that the troubled Teen Mom star officially checked herself into Indiana's Rockville Correctional Facility yesterday afternoon to begin serving out a whopping five-year sentence as a result of her arrest on drug possession charges last December.
So what's in store for the erstwhile reality star?"
"She will remain in the intake unit for approximately five weeks, at which time she will be evaluated and a determination made as to what facility is most appropriate for her," a spokesperson for the facility told E! News. "This is the typical intake process for all offenders."
Though the 22-year-old Portwood isn't necessarily the typical inmate.
While she was received at the facility yesterday at 12:55 p.m., the headline
grabbing young mom actually chose to serve out the lengthy sentence last month in lieu of complying with the terms of her court-ordered drug program.
As it happens, the reality star is no stranger to a cell, having spent multiple stints in jail this year after getting booked on contempt-of-court charges after violating her probation and failing to appear for a hearing.
As for her current half-decade sentence, while the time frame is a daunting one, Portwood will likely only end up serving about half that time behind
bars, accounting for good behavior.
