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."

Since when does breastfeeding constitute child porn? She may be 17, but she's a mother for God's sake. If seeing her boob in public is pornography, then there should be some sort of court order that bans her from breastfeeding in public. She's Britney's sister, and she's an unwed teenage mom who once was a kiddie TV star. Her family has been followed by paparazzi for years. What did she expect when she decided to breastfeed without covering herself up? She could have been a little more descreet and private about it, like using a blanket or someting, and then this wouldn't be an issue.

Breast feeding is not porn. These personal family pictures were taken in to be developed. Someone stole them to sell for money. That is the crime committed. I hope this does not make Jamie stop feeding her baby because of someones stupid act. And I do think whoever stole the pics, or pics of any kind, should be punished. They did not belong to them. And whoever buys them too, since they were not meant to be sold or published.

Okay! If you use one of those digital machines, anyone can come in behind the previous customer and reprint that they just printed. You just have to know how to use the Kodak Kiosks. Most likely it wasn't an employee, it was someone watching them, and then followed suit. Most employee's know the copyright law, which if caught is 10 grand and up to 7 years in prison. But if a "customer" printed them and the store employee packaged them, then the customer is held liable. Besides...for everyones info, after you print stuff like that on a kiosk (regardless if your Jamie Lynn Spears or some plain Jane) you can delete them yourself. Or ask the store for help. Who cares...IT'S A BOOB!!!

In relation to the comment "If Wal-Mart had better wages and health insurance benefits, the workers wouldn't be so sheisty!
" If you don't like the wages FIND ANOTHER JOB, SIMPLE, no-one is forcing you to work there.

As for the moron Spears giving them the memory card she is nothing but a moron. Get one of your trailer park members of your family to buy a photo printer for home if you cant' afford one.

Stupidity never ends!

This will teach everyone not to stick your memory card into someone else's computer. In order to print them it has to make a copy. Im sure the company also has it programmed to archive all data on the memory card that was loaded. Point here is Don't stick a memory card into any computer but your own. Just like taken photos on your phone, that magically end up online from the privacy of your phone. LOL Oh ya and what about myspace and face book that allow third parties access to your photos for no reason other then your own stupidity.

How dare anyone try to expose a young family like this after they have already been through so much? And what's more, breastfeeding you child is nothing to be ashamed about, good on Jamie Lynn for being a wonderful mother a feeding her baby naturally. Let's all leave them alone to enjoy their little girl in peace. What is this world coming to??????????

How dumb can you be??? You have more $$$ than you will ever spend in your lifetime, and you can't afford your own photo printer, especially if you want to be taking nude pics??? Are we a little challenged to operate it that we need others to do it for us??? And the cherry on the whip cream...no intelligence to figure out that with your status, others will take advantage of you, especially anything that exposes you, or presents the opportunity for a profit??? Maybe we're showing concern, but it's no real concern, it's just playing dumb so that we can stir up a little controversy of our own...only in America!!! :D

Like seriously? Doesn't law enforcement have better things to do with their time than look for some diva's breastfeeding boob pic? Since when is breastfeeding considered porn? Thats such a joke. Who cares. I guess the person who took the pics should be arrested for child porn too? Please, let my tax dollars to law enforcemnt f=go do something worthwhile. If it was my boob pic stolen, theyd just take a report.

One, i think that even though she's made a bad decision about her life, it's not enough to automatically group her with the "whores" and stuff like that.
Two, those pictures taken by him were of an intimate moment with his girlfriend, wife, whatever their status is, and their child together and doesn't constitute as pornography. I bet if your married and you had a child, that somewhere in those boxes upstairs is a video of your child being born. Gee, well that shows her private regions doesn't it? but you wouldn't call it a porno movie, because it's of a special moment.
Three, honestly guys grow up, I'm from the south and i can count on one hand the number of people i know that are "trailer trash", and i live in the boondocks! One southern guy has more hospitality and manners than New York City! Think about it, you bigots and start respecting other people's lives.
