In other Spears-related news, I feel that I have to nominate new teenage dad Casey Aldridge as Moron of the Year. According to a new report from TMZ, Casey thought it would be a brilliant idea to snap a bunch of private, family photos — including one of his teenage
bride babymama Jamie Lynn Spears exposing her left breast as she nursed their new born baby daughter Maddie Briann — and then take his camera to his friendly neighborhood Wal-Mart so that he could make a few copies of said photos. It never occurred to him that processing photos of his very famous family at a place like Wal-Mart might not be the best idea, especially since those Wal-Mart employees make minimum wage and the huge pay-out for private Spears family photos can be very high. It now turns out, according to the report, that federal and state authorities have gotten involved to help track down the photo peddlers because the exposed breast photo of JL is considered “child pornography” since she is still underage, even tho she’s already a mother. Um. Yeah:
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 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, Brian (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.
I mean … really? It never occurred to Casey that developing photos like this at Wal-Mart might be a bad idea? While it is grossly unfair that celebrities have to take extra precautions with things like this, I think it makes a wee bit more sense to mebbe invest in a $100 photo printer to print out personal pics like this? Mebbe? I mean, yes I understand that the Wal-Mart person is ultimately responsible for this heinous crime but I simply cannot believe that Casey would be this dumb. Actually, considering the situation he got him and his teenage lover in by practicing unsafe sex, I can believe he is this dumb.
For the record, the photo above of JL and MB is not one of the pilfered pics but is a photo snapped by OK! magazine after MB‘s birth. You can tell it’s not one of Casey‘s photos cuz JL‘s breasts are fully covered.
