Mommy Pics of Brit's Sis Trigger Criminal Probe

9/22/2008 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A stolen picture of Jamie Lynn Spears breast feeding her baby has sparked a federal child pornography investigation.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ federal and local authorities are on the hunt for someone peddling 12 pics of Britney Spears, Jamie Lynn, daughter Maddie and baby daddy Casey Aldridge. One of the pictures shows Jamie Lynn breast feeding Maddie -- Jamie Lynn's left breast is exposed.

The pics were taken on Casey's digital camera. We're told he took the camera card to his local Wal-Mart in Louisiana for copies. Law enforcement believes someone at the Wal-Mart may have made extra copies, then tried selling them.

Because Jamie Lynn is a minor, selling the pics -- or buying them -- could constitute a violation of federal laws prohibiting child pornography. Peddling pictures of a minor's breast -- even if not taken for sexual purposes -- could land the seller and the buyer in federal prison if they are marketed across state lines for the purpose of being lurid. Also, anyone purchasing the pics could be prosecuted for the crime of receiving stolen property.

Other pics in the set include Britney holding the baby and one of Jamie Lynn, Britney, Bryan (Brit's bro), Lynne Spears and Jamie Spears around Jamie Lynn's hospital bed. There are also pics of Maddie by herself, and there's a picture of Jamie Lynn in a negligee holding the baby.

Authorities are trying to find the man who is attempting to sell the photos. In addition, we're told Britney's lawyers are thinking about going after Wal-Mart for the alleged security breach.

UPDATE: Wal-Mart tells TMZ, "We saw the story on the wires and it's news to us too. We'll of course investigate what, if anything, has happened here."

Yet, if she whipped out her hooters to feed the child in a restaurant, I'd be forced to
be fine with looking at them since it's a "natural body function".
Give me a break. It's hardly child pRon if she's already a mother. Her childhood ship sailed a long time ago.
To me, either these people are THE biggest hillbilly hicks in the
world by bringing personal pictures to Wal-effin-mart for processing or they truly were hoping they would get their faces on TMZ. Actually, I'm chosing both options.

Good luck trying to prosecute this ridiculously stupid "case"......If pedophile Mark Foley just got off the hook in Florida because the republican attorney general there conveniently "botched" the case, then these harmless pictures should be filed away.......What an absolute joke!!

Well i think her boyfriend took the picture and are selling them for money , he has been trying to fight to get the baby and millions from her is what i read few weeks ago he called Britney Spears ex-husband up on the phone and asked him how can he get his little girl and that money from what storys said .. So i believe he took the pictures or even maybe the older woman that has been sleeping with him took them and there selling them for money ... I never did like her boyfriend something about him i just don't trust really he is another guy like Britney Spears ex-husband K -Fed.. All these guys want these poor girls money they know there worth alot of money, hummmm .. Good luck to the both of them !!

J. Spears... just ignore all this crap and keep breastfeeding your child. It is your right to do so, Get in touch with your local LL League and become a spokes person for breast feeding... Make something good of this ! If more women took a break and did it , it would be no big deal !

Going to Wal-mart to get the pictures copied is a real no brainer. That is the last place I would go for that service, Picturse of some one breast feeding are not pron, however they should not go out to the world with out consent. When you go to any place to get film or what ever processed, the people doing the work are responsible to guard your pictures. Other then to look to make sure they came out ok that is all that should happen. Some one should be fired and may arrested for stealing some one property. Maybe even a suit against Wal-mart might be in order.

DOES THIS SURPRISE YOU THAT JAMIE LYNN AND ASSOCIATED BOYFRIEND CASEY WOULD DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS ANYWAY? WHY TAKE PICTURES LIKE THAT WHEN ANYTHING COULD HAPPEN.THEY ARE STUPID KIDS IN GENERAL. THEY GET WHAT WHAT THEY DESERVE. GIVE ME A BREAK. EVERYONE IS SICK TO DEATH OF THE TABLOIDS ON THESE IDIOTS. THEY ARE TOO YOUNG TO KNOW RIGHT FROM WRONG OR GOOD JUDGEMENT FROM BAD, OBVIOUSLY.

Oh,please people-this is a publicity stunt,pure & simple. Mama has a book to peddle,half-wit older sister soon to have another CD to inflict on the world. No one with an IQ above room temperature would hand 'private' photos over to a public entity to develop,sheesh. Who takes photographs of breast-feeding,anyway? Take a few photos of someone on the commode,too? After all,'it's a natural act'.

I cant believe you guys are being rude. Yes she had a baby BFD. But how many pix do you want copied and sold????
I hope they sue WALMART & the PERSON who selling & Buying ABOUT TIME. She still is a child and thats her privet moments. If it was you daughter or sister, you'd be pissed.
Just because she is a teen mother SHE STILL HAS RIGHTS.
What would you do if you DOCTOR sold your of SURGERY PIX's or hospital vidieo, for his own gain. Cant tell me you'd just let it go.

Hey, let's at least give the girl credit for breastfeeding. Most girls her age are too selfish or immature to breastfeed their babies. But, this is something that should be kept private. Casey is a fool for going to Walmart when he knows everyone in their town knows who he is and I am sure checked the developing roll for interesting pictures. What a dimwitt!!!

It wasnt like she was AT WALMART brestfeeding- she was in a hospital room. Dumb ass! I know alot of women dont look their best after having a baby... they just taken that first moments of life into something public & ITS NOT !!!
Thats their special moments. They still have rights. I hope they laywer up & stick it to some of the rag-mag buyers and they will start playing fair.... when they have to pay thru the ass!!!
