Casey's Uncle: We're Shocked ... And We Aren't

12/20/2007 11:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ spoke with retired Baptist preacher Odus Jackson, who is Jamie Lynn Spears' baby daddy's uncle by marriage. (You still with us?)


Uncle Odus tells us that Casey is a "fine young man" who has always been courteous. That sentiment is apparently shared by many in his small town of Gloster, Miss., where we've been told over and over again Casey is a good kid from a good family.

As for Jamie Lynn, Uncle Odus says he has only met her once, on Thanksgiving of this year. As for news of her pregnancy, he says he found out, like the rest of us, on Tuesday night. He tells us the family was "shocked' and yet "we aren't." As a pastor, Uncle Odus says he's seen "this type of thing" more often than he'd like.

For the complete interview with Casey's Uncle Odus, check out TMZ TV Thursday night.

Louisiana mindset: Boyfriends and girlfriends is a badge of status. They spread their legs young.

Dear Mom of these two pretty train wrecks...
Birth Control It's easy, you would think after Britney you'd have the little sis at the docs at age twelve. That seems to be when your girls start.

Okay calm down beefcakes... dude, rape is considered when its against a person's will but I think everyone crying RAPE is referring to good ol' statuatory rape - you know, when men over 18 take advantage of children... LoL -even consenting couples have been charged with the crimes in spite of children being present. Remember that teacher that went to jail for "statuatory rape" - she now lives with the man and has 2 children with him. We all know he won't be charged with any crime, as they were already living together - but the issue here is principle. How can the law be selective and almost exclusively disregarded with celebirty? You know that ain't right...

Someone that is considered a minor can not give consent to have sex with an ADULT, even if her parents where ok with it.
Staturory(?) rape can be a misdemenor or a felony. But yes it is rape.

hes not going to jail because of the extent of their relationship & cuz theyve been together since he was 16 and she was 14, they said so on tmz tv!

you'd think the girl would look at what a mess her sister has been for a few years now, and say 'im not going to end up like my sister, im going to make good decisions' obviously brits her role model...
mom and dad must be proud, keep up the good work, brit & jl!

LETS JUST HOPE JL IS AT LEAST SMART ENOUGH NOT TO ASK BRIT FOR PARENTING ADVICE!!!!!!
