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."

Huhn!    

shes having sex with an adult-shes letting an adult take pictures of her breast feeding her baby--the adult takes the pictures to wal-mart to have them developed--its porn all right,but its not child porn--spears should have her butt whipped with a cat of nine tails and the adult should be locked up for a couple of years.--the wal-mart employee should get a million dolllars for the pictures.--is not that what the capitalistic system is all about ?--seeing an opportunity and then cashing in on it .

The only idiot here is Casey. What the hell was that stupid red neck thinking taking it to his local wal-mart?! He's probably behind it himself. As another posted. Why the hell take a digital to wal-mart when you can do it yourself on the computer. Too stupid to do it yourself? Then hire someone to do it for you and make them sign a confidentiality agreement. Lawd. Even the men they pick are freakin' stupid. So not going to be shocked if that Casey kid is in on this.

why doesn't Walmart just fire the person who did it. Always someone going after WALMART themselves. Why doesn't Britney just sue her trailer park manager. Or Bush.

privacy is privacy. jamie lynn deserves a little bit! she is NOT her sister and people need to realize that. having a baby at 17 is always a bad thing. my son will be 8 in a few weeks and i was 17 when i had him. his father was older, but like casey on by a few years. we have been married for 7 years and couldn't be happier. people need to let them be and give those pictures back.

Welcome to the trailer park nation, what idiot takes his pictures to Wal-Mart to develop of his celeb girlfriend, You can buy a copier printer for $100.00 and print all you want for 20 cents a print. What do you think is going to happen when you hand over your pictures to $8.00 hour Wal=Mart clerk.. All I want to know is where can I go to see these pictures of Jamie the Ho.

Are you people serious?!?! She is a minor REGARDLESS if she has had a baby or not. You people think it's okay for their PERSONAL PRIVATE pictures to be copied like that? Yes it would be so simple as to buy a printer but THEY ARE HUMAN, Walmart SHOULD be sued. Breastfeeding is natural, yes it doesn't mean she wants her breasts exposed to the whole world. For all anyone knows they could've been shopping and decided "hey, while we're here let's just develop these pictures here." Like one of you's said THEY DO HAVE THE MONEY. Imagine your MINOR child having a baby and someone snaps a picture of HER breastfeeding and her breast exposed, and that person decides to put it ALL over the internet. How the hell would you feel.."Oh she is old enough to "crap out a kid" that's not child porn" By the way YOU DON'T CRAP OUT A KID IDIOTS. Just because she is famous you people think it's okay. Oh wait! I see, you all probably want it to be leaked out to everyone therefore you's can see her breasts? Let me correct something, SHE wanted the fame, she got pregnant like A LOT of irresponsible teens, Get over it. She got out of Hollywood, and is trying to make a life for her family outside of the public eye. Seriously people wake up,

to Guys comment - Most men WOULD find a women's nursing breast sexually arousing and that is why the "pornographic" part of it comes into play. I agree that it is sad that women, even a nursing mother has to be careful and cover up because of how certain men may react, but I guess this is life. A breast is a breast in men's eyes, rather it is nursing or not.

You people are all idiots. It's not the breastfeeding that is considered porn. Read the article there is a picture where her left breast is exposed. Casey and Jamie Lynn are just trying to live a normal life. Taking their pictures to Walmart to get developed is about as normal as you can get. I send my digital pictures to Costco saves money on ink then on my photo printer. For all of the comments about her being old enough to have a kid means that it's not child porn. If a 13 year has a kid it's ok to look at naked pictures of her. How would any of you feel if your personal pictures of your child's birth were stolen when developed and then showed up online. You'd be quick to sue and cry or poor me. Jamie Lynn is still a minor and any pictures of her breast should be considered child porn. You'd fight too if it was your kids pictures.
