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."

When are people going to understand that if they don't want a moment caught forever and possibly seen by anyone else, NOT to take pictures. She should not be embarrassed by these photos. Big deal, her boob is showing. I think in the Spears family there have been worse body parts caught on film...Brittney's crotch. To call this child porn just crosses the line. She is not a defenseless child fending off unwanted advances; or put in compromising positions; or asked to perform lewd acts. She is an unwed teenage mother by choice, who is breastfeeding her child. Sad as it may be, it is not child porn. Reserve that title for the truly innocents of the world.
To the person who commented that the spears' grew up in a house and not a trailer...it is a metaphor for their pathetic low class way of handling their lives. No common sense, no class, no smarts. Actually I think they give trailer trash a bad name.

It sounds like someone at TMZ already had a look at the kiddy porn photos.

Many of you people are absolute asses. Are you jealous of the family? Jaime Lynn is still a minor whether she gave birth (Oleg women don't crap out kids! Jerk) to a child or not. Casey took the pictures in to walmart not the Spears family. I guess they are responsible for the bad economy, too. Whatever their sins are, look at your own because by the way many of you blog and spell you have your own. Not to mention that all too often men on these blogs show their deep seeded hatred for women by calling them bitches and whores. It is disgusting! I would not like any pictures of my breast being sold without permission either, and I hope they catch the guy and fire him as well as prosecute. Maybe it is not pornography but it is a violation of her privacy, theft and immoral.

When you are a child and then give birth to a child, you become an "imancipated minor." That means that in the eyes of the law, you are an ADULT. No child porn here. Just some poor working WalMart slob trying to make a quick buck. If the baby daddy is dumb enough to take his camera to WalMart, then no one has a right to complain. You give up your right to privacy when you take your film to be developed.

#64. Calling Jamie Lynn's baby bastard is wrong in what way?? Jamie Lynn and Casey were not married at the time of the birth of the baby. Looking up the meaning of bastard in Websters sure looks like a correct statement. What is a bastard if it is not the offspring of an unmarried mother and father??

Casey is pipefitter apprentice, when he works. He is related to Kevin-Trash (brothers-law) Get the picture. It was Casey himself. He needs, wants money. He does not care for Jaime Lynne or the baby. He wants money to play around with other females. Sorry to say it, but in my heart I think he did it. I hope the Federal authorities catch him.

Ever notice how pop tarts are always, always, always portrayed as innocent victims? Someone always steals their stuff without their knowledge, blah, blah, blah. I don't believe a word of it. A breast? How does this 'spark' a pornography' investigation? Are there not enough Wall Street crooks or men killers out there to hunt down?

If this pop tart was my girlfriend, I would simply hang myself in the shower. Much less painful.

I am actually very impressed that a 17 yr old is nursing. Good for her! I always knew she would be a better mom than her older sister. anyway, we have printed many photos of myself at walmart. csection photos and many breastfeeding photos. we wanted them to come out better! if we did it at home, it wouldnt have been great quality. That newborn stage is very special and important. i guess they figured it was safe. some of you really need to get a life. wasting so much energy hating the spears family. worry about ur own family and get a damn life already

Jamie is a mother. She is married. How is a mother breast feeding her baby considered 'child pornography'?
