German couple convicted of rape, online sale of young son

News agency dpa reported that the Freiburg state court in southwestern Germany sentenced the woman, who has been identified only as Berrin T.in line with German privacy rules, to 12 1/2 years in prison for rape, sexual abuse and forced prostitution.

Diaz received a 10-year prison sentence for 14 counts of aggravated sexual assault, one count of rape and one count of bodily harm while making child pornography.

The two were accused of repeatedly abusing and raping the boy, now 10, and selling him to other men online for more than two years.

The woman's 39-year-old male partner was handed a 12-year prison term followed by "preventive detention", which could delay his release on the grounds that he poses a danger to the public.

The mother of the boy, Berrin T., 48, and her partner Christian L., 39, will serve twelve-and-a-half-year and twelve-year prison sentences respectively for selling Berrin's son on the area of the internet that can not be accessed by search engines.

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.

The stepfather has a previous conviction for paedophilia.

He also made serious accusations against the child's 48-year-old mother, who confessed to the crimes but remained largely silent about any possible motive during the trial.

During the trial, it emerged that the couple had sexually abused the boy themselves for at least two years. The verdict was based on confessions by the pair and the videos of the abuse.

Police started investigating after receiving an anonymous tip in 2017.

Local authorities have been accused of failing to protect the boy from his abusive parents, after officials removed him from his home, but returned him back weeks later.

The boy has been rehomed with a foster family, and will receive €42,500 (£38,000) in compensation from his mother and her partner, and €18,000 (£16,091) in compensation from Gonzalez Diaz.
