Amber Portwood: Out of Jail, Into Grandma’s House

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood just got out of jail free … mostly.

On Friday, the MTV reality train wreck was released from jail, but instead of heading to a halfway house after leaving the Madison County (Ind.) correctional facility, she’s already settling in at another house … her maternal grandmother’s.

“Amber is all taken care of [and] getting settled in,” says her mom, Tonya.

Last week, after the halfway house denied Amber, her mom told us that she was “happy and relieved that she [wouldn’t] have to live in a halfway house.”

“Now she will get to spend more time with her daughter, which is what this was all about anyway,” Tonya said. A bonus of the new living arrangement?

Filming of Teen Mom is still a go!

Though she is still required to attend rehab at Sister 2 Sister Ministries, in Anderson, Ind., production can proceed with her living at grandma’s place.

Filming was banned at Sister 2 Sister, where Amber Portwood was set to live upon her release before the residence wanted no part of it. So it’s win-win?

Possibly. After completing eight months of rehab, she’s required to get a real full-time job, i.e., one that doesn’t involve reality-show cameras.

Not to mention, if she violates her strict probation in any way, she faces a maximum of five years in prison on her felony drug-possession charge.

That seems inevitable to skeptics, but for now, Amber’s mom says she and her daughter are “so happy she’s home and around family who love her deeply.”

Will Amber end up back in jail?

Barry Bonds Sentenced to 30 Days House Arrest, Probation For Obstruction of Justice
Celebrity News

Disgraced baseball great Barry Bonds was sentenced to 30 days house arrest and probation today – basically a slap on the wrist for the juiced up home run king.

A federal judge sentenced Bonds to probation and home confinement for obstructing justice during a grand jury probe into a firm that sold steroids to athletes.

U.S. District Judge Susan Illston stayed the sentence until a higher court rules on the appeal of Bonds’ conviction, which resulted from the years-long BALCO probe.

Barry Bonds: What a ...

The sentence caps the highest-profile trial in a 10-year PED case that ensnared athletes in several sports and revealed the use of previously undetectable steroids.

A number of athletes admitted using steroids during secret grand jury proceedings in 2003 related to the investigation of a Bay Area steroids manufacturer BALCO.

Federal prosecutors in 2007 charged Bonds with lying to the grand jury. A criminal jury in April convicted him of obstruction of justice for giving evasive answers.

Responding to questions about steroid use with non sequiturs and rambling digressions, Bonds basically dug his own grave there, not that he’ll be punished for it.

The jury failed to reach a verdict on three other charges, and prosecutors asked the judge to sentence Bonds to 15 months in prison. Clearly that didn’t work out.

After the hearing, Dennis Riordan, a lawyer for Bonds, said he believes the conviction will be thrown out on appeal, which it very well might, knowing this case.

His conviction in the court of public opinion? Another story entirely.
