ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) — A star of the MTV reality show "Teen Mom" has pleaded guilty to felony possession of a controlled substance and admitted to violating probation.

The Herald Bulletin reports Madison Circuit Judge David Happe told 21-year-old Amber Portwood of Anderson she will find out Thursday whether she will be accepted into a drug court rehabilitation program that would eventually allow the charges to be dismissed. If not, she faces up to five years in prison.

Portwood was arrested Dec. 19 while meeting with probation officers for alleged probation violations, including failing to deposit $10,000 into a college trust fund for her daughter, failing to submit to drug tests and not getting her GED or completing anger management classes. She is being held in the Madison County Jail without bond.
