Amanda, who is also the mother of a 12-year-old son, said she was humiliated when people saw her in public and assumed she was the woman whose children had been taken away.
She said her husband has been staying away from drugs and she wants her family back together.
"He's doing good and we're trying," she said. "I want to give him hope to do it, to hold onto something."
William Booth told the judge he had found employment as a heavy equipment operator and could start work on Monday at a salary of $10 an hour.
While Booth had shown progress, the judge said it was unacceptable that he did not complete the drug rehabilitation program and questioned his ability to stay on track. He also noted a list of previous criminal charges and said that Booth "is no choir boy."
Booth was sentenced to one to 10 years for grand larceny and one to five for conspiracy to make methamphetamine. Sentences are not to be served concurrently.
As the prison sentences were read, his wife and daughter wept.
As he was led from the courtroom, he turned to them and said, "I love you."
