Britney Spears' Father Won't Be Charged With Child Abuse, Prosecutor Says

If you've been following the child abuse allegations case against Britney Spear's father, Jamie Spears, there has finally been an update of the status. Britney has been vocal about how sad she is about the allegations and we can only assume that she's happy with the outcome.

Backing up a bit, these allegations were made by Britney's ex-husband and father of their two sons, Kevin Federline, when he filed a report with the sheriff's office last month. Within this report, he accused Jamie Spears, 67, of having an "inappropriate physical altercation" with his 13-year-old grandson, Sean, during a visit at his home in Westlake Village. This news came fro Federline's longtime lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, who accompanied Federline when he filed the complaint.

According to The Blast and TMZ, the allegations came after Britney's son and grandfather had a verbal argument, and Spears allegedly shook the boy after breaking down a locked door to reach him.

These reports were submitted on September 4th and Sara Brucker, a spokeswoman for the district attorney declined to discuss specifics of the allegations "given the confidential nature of the submitted charge."

USA Today shared that an announcement was made on Tuesday of last week, revealing that Jamie Spears will not be charged for these allegations, as per district attorney of Ventura County, California.

District Attorney Gregory Totten issued a press release saying that criminal charges will not be pursued against James "Jamie" Spears of Westlake Village in the county north of Los Angeles. The Ventura County sheriff's department has investigated the "allegations of child abuse" against Spears and he shared that "After reviewing the evidence, there is insufficient proof that a criminal offense was committed by Mr. Spears," Totten concluded.

Kaplan says Federline is satisfied with that decision, "Kevin had no desire that Jamie be prosecuted," Kaplan said. "And now that there is an order in place that adequately protects the boys, the prosecution is of no concern to Kevin – if anything he's glad Jamie does not have to deal with it."
