He’s out of the hospital, but Casey Aldridge must now deal with the legal implications of his recent truck crash, people.com reports.

Alridge — better known as Jamie Lynn Spears’ boyfriend and the father of their 10-month-old daughter Maddie — was charged with careless operation of a motor vehicle after he drove off a road into a ditch and flipped his F-250 pickup truck on April 26.

According to Louisiana criminal attorney Lester Gauthier, who is not involved with the case, the 20-year-old will face a fine of no more than $175 US and/or imprisonment for not more than 30 days.

“A typical sentence might be the fine plus court costs,” says Gauthier. “He may not have a prison sentence. If he is given a prison sentence, it likely will be suspended.” The suspension, he explains, would not be enforced if conditions — such as a driving course — are complied with and he does not get into further trouble during the probation.

“(Aldridge’s) license would probably not be suspended,” adds Gauthier, and the teen may not even need to appear in court.
