Amber Portwood Pleads Not Guilty

It seems that reality TV star Amber Portwood is walking free for the moment. The star was arrested recently on numerous felony charges, and held in jail for 24-hours.

However, the 20-year old mother posted her $5,000 bail and was released from the Indiana jail that she found herself in only a day after she was put into custody.

Unfortunately for Portwood, this does not mean that all of her troubles are over and done with. Portwood is being charged with two felony counts of domestic battery and one misdemeanor count of domestic battery, due to fights that she had with her ex-fiance, Gary Shirley.

She is also being charged one felony count of neglect of a dependent, since her daughter, two-year old Leah, witnessed a few of the arguments.

If Portwood is convicted of the charges, she could be looking at a maximum of three years in jail and a $10,000 fine.

A source close to the couple said, “Gary is very upset because he didn’t want to see anything happen to Amber. If he had it his way no charges would be brought against her.

He only wants his family back and intact for Leah.”
