An even higher sum was demanded: musician Angelo Kelly has been fined 3,000 euros by a Bavarian district court. He had his four-year-old son perform in public.
Dhe district court in Haßfurt in Bavaria has sentenced the musician Angelo Kelly to a fine of 3000 euros on charges of child labor. A court spokeswoman explained the judgment on Friday that he employed a child as an employer in a prohibited manner.
“At this performance, the child William stood on stage for at least 30 minutes, played along, sang along and also interpreted his own song. This is an employment within the meaning of the Youth Labor Protection Act ”, the judge at the Haßfurt District Court said literally.
The judgment is not yet final.
The subject of the proceedings was a concert by Kelly with his youngest son in July 2019 at Eyrichshof Castle near Ebern in Lower Franconia. According to the court, the appearance of the then four-year-old violated the Youth Labor Protection Act.
Kelly announced on his Facebook profile on Friday that he did not want to recognize the judgment. “As a father, the well-being of my children is most important to me,” wrote the 39-year-old. His son William was never obliged to appear at his shows. “If he did it, it was only because he wanted to.”

He and his lawyer would now appeal the verdict. At the beginning of the process, there was even a higher fine (5000 euros) in the room, as a fine notice issued in October 2020 emerged. Kelly resisted the decision and appealed.
