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."

Lynn spears is the worst mother. Jamie lynn is not even old enough to have a baby, much less breast feed one. Her body wasn't even finished developing!!! Just because I can at twelve, doesn't mean my body is ready. Duuuh!!!

Why isn't the baby put up for adoption to a nice married couple who wants a child and are infertile! What a bunch of worthless white TRASH!!! Good job again Lynn!!! Now go eat some pork rinds and keep Jamie Lynn at home so we won't have to see either of you!!!

Jamie Lynn does not need any advice from Britney on parenting. Could one think of a worse role model for a parent than Britney?? I hope all those videos of her doing crazy things are long gone and forgotten by the time her kids are teenagers!! Could you imagine those poor kidsif those pictures were shown and videos played and seen by their peers??

Kiddie porn? You have got to be kidding. The biggest dumb ass of all has got to be the idiot Barney Fife redneck cop who even suggested the idea of kiddie porn.
And, I have to agree with the poster who said that since Casey took the photo, and owns the camera, and is an adult, HE SHOULD BE THE ONE ARRESTED.
That whole family is so dysfunctional and sick to begin with. We have Britney, who has all the money but absolutely no common sense. If she did, she would have gotten rid of all the bloodsucking parasites (family, friends, Kevin) a long time ago. It is hysterical to think Kevin left her. Now that is bad....
And Jamie, who had potential, but pretty much ruined what little bit of a career she had, because she could not keep her legs closed. I seriously doubt anyone considers her a celebrity.
Casey is a nobody, but knows about money. He will do the Kevin, eventually.
The mother, Lynne, takes the cake here. She should be stoned to death. How she can even call herself a mother? She sold her kids out for money!!!!!! She is a leech, a parasite, and just plain disguisting. Imagine revealing every detail of your own kids life, right down to the sexual stuff. All for good old cash...
And the funniest (or perhaps the saddest) part of it all is that this group considers themselves to be a family, and is photographed together. LOL..
They are a lot of things, but a family isnt one of them...

You people need to get real.

1) It's breastfeeding. There is nothing sexual about it.

2) Federal Law - being what it is - doesn't discriminate. There is no grey area. Child Nudity = Child Pornography. This has been the law for at least 20 years. They toughened the child pornography laws under the Regan/Bush years. Technically, possessing Bath Pictures of your infant or a certain 1982 edition of Penthouse (feat. Traci Lords) can land you in jail.

They can't charge Casey. There's no way to prove lurid intent. Would be a fun court case though.

3) Just because they have a digital camera and can afford a photo printer doesn't mean they're computer literate. If they were, then he'd have used a do-it-yourself kiosk and avoided this problem. The other thing is time. Why do it yourself, when you can pay someone else to do it?

4) I hate wal-mart as much as anyone, but why sue them, because an employee stole property from Wal-Mart (the photo paper and ink as well as printing resources). Unfortunately, people steal from their employers all the time and try to profit from it. Like many retailers, Wal-Mart does its best to prevent theft from both external as well as internal sources. They should know roughly who did it based on time of day and the work schedule.

Back to my point; Why sue Wal-Mart? If someone steals (or buys) a baseball bat and injures, maims or kills someone, is the Retailer liable? Honestly, The Spears family should consider themselves lucky that they weren't reported to the authorities for shooting the pics (see #2)

Why take them to WalMart to make copies? It's a digital camera. I'm sure they have the money to buy their own printer. You know digital cameras even come with their own printers now!

Actually, the breast Jamie Lynn was using for breastfeeding was hidden by her baby head's doesn't count as child porn. (Although a photo of an underage girl breastfeeding is kind of icky). However, Jamie Lynn's other breast was exposed in the photo and thus constituted child porn. Of course, a major hole is why Jamie Lynn let herself be photographed breast-feeding with her breasts hanging out in the first place. (Rolling eyes).

What a fine pair of parents Britney and Jamie Lynn are??? Britney is mentally ill and hanging on to sanity by a fingertip and Jamie Lynn is still a child raising a child. Neither of the Spears sisters would make mother of the year candidates now would they?? Jamie Lynn has Casey and who does Britney have????

Oops! In my last post, I meant "Actually, the breast Jamie Lynn was using for breastfeeding was hidden by her baby's head and thus doesn't count as child porn".

Answer to no man for Britney question. Britney is crazy and only heavy doses of medications keep her this side of sane. Would you want a relationship with a woman that is a mental case?? I did not think so!!! Britney could buy a boyfriend as she sure has the money. Britney could pick up a nice homeless man and take him home.

You can develop you digital pics at Wal-Mart if you want better quality. Besides, why should Casey be blamed? She's his wife & she was breast feeding...wow...now he's not allowed to take pics of his wife & baby? Come on!
