“Teen Mom” star Amber Portwood narrowly avoided being thrown in jail in the criminal case accusing her of pulling a machete on her baby daddy.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the reality star was in court today and pleaded “guilty to Count 1 Domestic Battery (Level 6 Felony) and was sentenced. Ms. Portwood was sentenced to 2.5 years of Probation (906 days).
She was facing a year behind bars for her alleged attack against her ex, Andrew Glennon.
Per the plea agreement, Portwood can leave the state of Indiana for employment purposes. She has to get approval if she plans to leave for other reasons.
Portwood will have to complete 26 weeks of court-ordered parenting classes, submit to mental health evaluation and treatment along with a substance abuse evaluation. She also has to complete a batterer’s intervention program.
The “Teen Mom” star will have to submit to random urine and breath testing while on probation. Her probation officer will request a minimum of 1 time per month.
Once her probation officer notifies her, she has 24 hours to “find an appropriate facility to complete the testing and the results must be released directly to probation.”
Further, the judge ordered Portwood to have no contact with Glennon. The no-contact order can be modified if her ex wishes. The order has a provision allowing Portwood to talk to Glennon for arranging custody and visitation of their one-year-old son.
