Stop me if you've heard this one. A teenage boy, with the permission and consent of an underage girl's parents, takes the minor into his home to live with him, without the benefit of being legally married. They engage in sexual intercourse. Sound vaguely familiar? This isn't the story of how Warren Jeffs was convicted of being an accomplice to rape and how Allen Steed is awaiting trial on charges of rape of a minor himself. This is the story of Britney Spears' 16-year-old sister, Jamie Lynn, and how Lynne and James Spears allowed their 16-year-old daughter to move in with her 18-year-old boyfriend, Casey Aldridge. As a result, she is now pregnant. Neither Casey nor her parents are being arrested for anything. What a hypocritical world!
