Could Jamie Lynn's Beau Face Charges?

Jamie Lynn Spears' pregnancy, at age 16, has raised legal questions because of Casey Aldridge's age. Casey is believed to be 18 or 19. There is still no word on where the sexual intercourse took place. However, if it happened in Jamie Lynn’s home state of Louisiana, and if Casey was 19 at the time, he could be charged with what the state calls "felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile," which is defined as "sexual intercourse with consent between someone age 19 or older and someone between age 12 and 17." If he was under 19, then he might be charged with a misdemeanor. Laws vary from state-to-state.

A spokeswoman for the local sheriff's department in Kentwood, Louisiana, told Baton Rouge's WAFB-TV that no complaint has been filed in the case and "no criminal investigation is currently underway." Three months ago, when asked if she wanted to have kids, Jamie Lynn told Us, "Whatever happens, happens."
