Life’s pretty sweet when you’re teen TV princess Jamie Lynn Spears, even if you get knocked up just after your sweet 16.
It could be a hell of a lot worse, anyway. Just ask Genarlow Wilson, an African American honor student, who, at 17, got a consensual BJ from a 15-year-old during a motel room party. Wilson was convicted of aggravated child molestation and had to lobby the legislature and courts to avoid a decade in prison and a spot on the national sex offenders registry.
Zoey 101 star Jamie Lynn, the youngest sibling of Britney, not only got freak nasty with Casey Aldridge, the 19-year-old son of a Cleveland, Tennessee, paper mill worker she’s been dating since she was 14—she got pregnant. The response? A comforting hug from her employer Nickelodeon, the cover of OK! magazine, and a portrayal of the events framed in the soft light of an after-school special.
