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."

#274 -- Yes a girl can be a child and a mother. No 16 year old is mature enough mentally to qualify as an adult, even those who didn't get knocked up like Jamie Lynne. It's true Jamie Lynne is trying to do the right things and it seems like hopefully motherhood will help her mature faster than most 16 year old girls, but being 16 is a minor and is a teenager and is not an adult woman, no matter if she has 1 baby or just dropped her 3rd or 4th. Legally and mentally and life experience wise, a 16 year old -- even Jamie Lynne -- is not an adult woman.

Jamie Lynne has saddled herself with this piece of dog sh*t Casey and that her biggest problem right now. If she would kick his ass out of her life, she'd be showing good judgment. Once she gets rid of him (and I hope and pray she will soon), her next obstacle is to be sure she is a better mother than her own mother has been in the past. Then third, she needs to hold up her big sister Brit as a shining example of all the things she should never ever do. Jamie Lynne is smart and seems to be a good mom and if she can overcome these 3 obstacles she can have a great life with Maddie and find a worthy man to give her love to. As for her breasts, well, I don't blame her for hating to have her private life exposed, but that too will pass -- specially if she ditches the jock-ass bum Casey.

Yes, Casey is guilty of statutory rape. I don't approve of that unless the consenting minor girl gets probation time. But the guiltiest culprit in this sage is Mama Lynne who allowed them to sleep together (without making sure Jamie Lynne got birth conrol) and then lied in her book and said she didn't allow it. Mama Lynne ought to be arrested for contributing to the delinquency of her minor daughter.

I would have expected that there would be more resistance to the idea that breastfeeding is obscene and pornographic. ("How _dare_ you suggest I go to the bathroom to feed my baby! Do _you_ eat your meals on the toilet???")

And if some weirdo's get turned on by a nursing mother, is it any different than if some weirdo happens to get turned on by pictures of a five year-old wearing a snowsuit?

People are disgusting. Anything to get a picture of a celebrity. Stealing pictures of Jamie Lynn breastfeeding? Really? Losers.

Get a clue    

Hey, too bad..Cover up next time instead of flopping your boobs out...I breastfeed and never had an issue with using a blanket...TRASH doesn't cover up their boobs...The price to be paid when you make the DECISION to breastfeed...and being famous (or riding on the shirt tails of her sister Britney) she should have a little more commonsense then to just let her tatas hang out....

Child porn is not having some knocked up teenage mother who's stupid enough to have her boob hang out for all the world to see....Good thing I wasn't in that Wal-mart...I would have made a scene and told her to cover it up!

First of all, the Spears are PEOPLE and they have feelings like the rest of us. Second, what was done was completely wrong and everybody wants to talk about the Spears and the baby daddy like they did something wrong! So what if they can develop the pics at home...they chose to go to Wal-Mart for convenience and some dumb ass stole their pics. How in the hell is that their fault. These girls, their families, and their children are probably wishing the rest of us would just croak and die, so they can have some peace and sanctity!

if a picture of her breast is child porn, why hasnt her bf been arrested for taking them? exactly!! it isnt child porn. tmz and other just throw that out to get headlines. brooke sheilds was nude in a movie when she was what? 11? its just stupid. a boob, of someone of any age, is not child porn. stop the bs and just say what it is.... stupid rich rednecks, with no brains

"Good thing I wasn't in that Wal-mart...I would have made a scene and told her to cover it up! "....Apparently YOU didnt read the story....

"TRASH doesn't cover up their boobs...".. that is outragous to say! Breastfeeding a child in public with using some kind of coverage it not trashing in anyway... Whats trashy is how you classify yourself as being any better just because you use a blanket!!!!
