  • German couple jailed for selling son, 9, to paedophiles on dark web

The mother of the boy, identified only as Berrin T. under German law, was jailed for 12-and-a-half years while her partner, indentified as Christian L., received a 12-year sentence followed by preventive detention in a case that shocked the country and raised serious questions about child protection services in Germany.

Their sentences fell short of what prosecutors had demanded - 14 years and six months for Taha and 13 years and six months for Lais.

The pair and six others were arrested last September.

A Spanish man was on Monday (Aug 6) sentenced by the court to 10 years behind bars for repeatedly sexually abusing the young boy.

News agency dpa reported that the Freiburg state court sentenced the woman on Tuesday to 12½ years in prison and her partner to 12 years.

The court heard that the mother, Berrin T, would drive her son to meet with these paedophiles and then force him to take part in the sexual assaults. Among them: In March 2017 the boy was removed from the home after it was found he was living with Christian, who as a convicted pedophile could not have contact with children; the courts didn't speak with the boy but rather sided with his mother and returned him.

The stepfather has a previous conviction for paedophilia, the AFP reported.

During the trial, it emerged that the couple had sexually abused the boy themselves for at least two years.

In the following months, the court said, the woman organized assaults on a 2-year-old girl she occasionally looked after.

The 33-year-old was also ordered to pay €18,000 (S$28,464) to the young victim.

Local authorities have been accused of failing to protect the boy, who now lives with a foster family.

Officials took the boy away from his mother in March a year ago following vague indications from police that he might be at risk, but a local court sent him back weeks later on condition that she not allow any contact between the child and her partner.
