On December 18, 2007, it was announced in an article in OK! Magazine that 16-year old Jamie Lynn was 12 weeks pregnant.
She and her mother spoke to the magazine in an exclusive interview. Nickelodeon, the network that carries Spears' series Zoey 101, issued the following statement shortly after the announcement:
"We respect Jamie-Lynn's decision to take responsibility in this sensitive and personal situation. We know this is a very difficult time for her and her family, and our primary concern right now is for Jamie Lynn's well being."
The father is Casey Aldridge, 19, Jamie Lynn's longtime boyfriend, whom she met through church.  Because Spears was legally still a minor, and the three-year age difference, Aldridge could be charged with statutory rape, but prosecutors may be unlikely to do so.
On October 26, 2007, the Georgia State Supreme Court ruled 4-3 that Wilson's sentence was cruel and unusual, and ordered him released. He was released from prison in the late afternoon that day.

Consensual sex between people just a couple of years apart should not be a crime, at the very most it should be a misdemeanor.
Does that include sex between a 13 year old and an eleven year old? What if the eleven year old is your daughter? While I agree that the boy got a raw deal, maybe he'll learn to exercise a little self control next time.
