Pennsylvania Authorities Will Not Prosecute Jon & Kate Producers

Pennsylvania authorities will not prosecute Jon & Kate Plus 8 producers, despite ruling that child-labor permits should have been obtained for the children appearing on the show.

"Based on the investigation, we did not obtain any evidence that there were any transgressions in the treatment of the children under the child-labor law," Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry spokesman Troy Thompson told, "but we still conclude that the child-labor permits were required under the labor law."

Under the agreement, at least 15 percent of gross proceeds from Jon & Kate Plus 8 and any future shows featuring the Gosselin children will be placed in trust accounts until the children turn 18 or unless needed for their safety, education, welfare and health, Thompson said.

And child-labor permits must be obtained before the children appear in any future programming filmed in the state, Thompson added.
