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."

Firstly, I think it's pitiful this is what people are arguing about? For those who dont turn on CNN, the economy is on the brink of self destruction with a national debt we cant really afford, we are at the dawn of a presidential election where (reguardless of what side you are on) we are faced with the same canidate of a different face and remain dependent on oil with lack of alterntive resources, interantionally tehre is a civil war goin gon in Georgia (yes it's not only a state) and Kosovo did declare indepenence form Serbia again (which for those who dont is partially to blame for sparking WWI), this is what we find pressing enough to discuss? I am 18 and of the new generatoin and I find this lack of concern disgusting. That aside, I have low opinons of the Spear's and many other celeberties for the example they provide. That is all I will say on that front. This is an invasion of privacy and should be treated as such with no special treatment at all. There is a case of theft and neglegance on Walmarts part. The respective perpatrators should be punished by law. Let's face it this whole situation is bit redicioulous and at best laughable. What I think and what i believe are two very different things in this case as they oftan are. It is more intellagent to go with my belief in saying legally shes under age. Reguardless of your opinon on breast-feeding's status on the porno scale, she is under age. Despite her boyfriend being legal and her minor status, she consented. IF any kind of legal action is to be taken for the photos, the boyfriend did take them and the buck stops there. Though many including myself suspect this is just another attention ploy, let's hope they learned from it this time. Perhaps these sorts of things wouldn't happen if we had better role models to begin with.

Okay here is how a normal person would look at it.
*She is with a man who is older why is it not porn for him to take pictures?
*the Hollywood/ LA area there are more discreet photo processing labs.
*Have you seen prom pictures of this past school year? Omg there is more boob showing than I am sure these nursing pics show. Are these dance photogs pornographers?
*what about tv shows like those new beach cop shows? They show mega boobs on every episode and they cannot say that these girls are all over 18
Its just bullcrap and the family needs to just suck it up and be more cautious next time and OMG people need to quit saying poor spears family. they eat all this up and they actually thrive on it.

A picture of a minors breast is a federal crime but Casey Aldridge having sex with a minor is alright?

Jamie Lynn is going to need a lot of help from Britney to raise her bastard baby. The ladies both have children and they are not married. Why can Britney not find a man???

How TMZ is a "news" site is beyond my belief.

1. She had a kid, and is no longer a minor in regards to sex anymore.
2. Breast feeding a child is NOT child pornography. If that is the case, then women breast feeding in public would be arrested for sex in public.

Dumb ass TMZ!!

How is it possible to have extra copies made from a digital camera when you stand right there? Took my memory card to a Wal-mart, Target and never have I just dropped off my memory card and just came back when it was done, so I pull the BS card!!!!! Suggestion...Get on your own computer and print them out like everyone else
