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."

I remember growing up breast feeding was something natural and not to be ashamed of. Breast feeding was never considered shameful until now. This is very strange. I feel like things changed so fast in just my lifetime. Now its considered porn to breast feed! This is just ridiculous!

What an idiot! If he wanted a photo of his baby's mama breast feeding (disgusting as some people may find the idea), why didnt' he download the photos to his personal PC? He could have then made copies using a home printer. What idiot would want the people at Walmart to see those photos? Ewwwwwwwwwwwwww!

Whether it's a beautiful image of motherhood or an image of sexually stimulation is in the mind of the beholder. Was Demi Moor's pregnant nude belly beautiful or ugly? Or that of many others?

The "invasion of privacy" is a legitimate issue, which probably could have been avoided in many ways, including using a more professional producer. Still, it's the people who steal the images and sell them who should be prosecuted. But then, I think many of the popperazi should be arrested and prosecuted.

IDIOTS! How much are you dummies worth? And you're too stupid to buy your own photo printer for under $300 so you don't have to take your personal photos to Wal-Mart? You deserve having the photos stolen, you retards.

Why isn't anyone putting Casey in jail for statutory rape ? It was illegal to screw a 16 year old isn't it ???
I hope all the Spears clans breasts hang like torpedos to their tummies...they are all skanks and Mom Spears is the biggest one.

This 18 year old moron gets a 16 year old girl pregnant. Then the now 19 year old moron takes inappropriate pictures of a SEVENTEEN YEAR OLD MINOR!!!! The police should be locking HIS ass up for child pornography! Then let's see him get custody or 5 MILLION FREAKING DOLLARS!

I think we should tax this family and give the money to illegal aliens who cannot breast feed...also, I do not know If my wife hates this young lady or not...was she ever a community organizer? does her pastor hate white people too? Why didn"t she have an abortion if she knew the baby would eat so much?

ugh    

What person in their right mind actually takes pics of their baby breastfeeding? I would hurl if my mother showed me pics of me doing that. Sorry, that's just damn weird. Also, she's a celebrity, she should know better than to take any kind of boobage pics much less give them to that mental midget Casey. All these women on here crying about breastfeeding being natural - gross! Most people do NOT want to see that crap. Oh sure that isn't politically correct, but it's the truth you freaks. Do that at home, get a breastpump and STFU. I love how all you holier than thou people act like if you didn't run across some pics that could net you thousands upon thousands like you wouldn't have taken them. Get real. It's like 10 years worth of Wally World pay and you wouldn't have to show up to that cesspool of a department store.

Start typing haters, truth hurts.

Hopefully she doesn't make two mistakes. The second one would be marrying that idiot. What the hell is he going to freaking Walmart for? There are many, many other places he could have went if he was just too ignorant to print them at home. I think he loves all of the attention that he is getting from knocking up a spears girl.
