  • FREIBURG GERMANY- AUGUST 07 ATTENTION EDITORS Pixelation done in accordance with court orders. Defendants Christian L. and Berrin T. arrive for their pronouncement of judgement on charges related to sexual abuse of a minor at the regional cour

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

In a case that has horrified Germany, a mother and her partner have been convicted of the repeated rape of her young boy, and for selling him for sex on the internet.

A Swiss citizen and three German men who also abused the boy, now aged 10, were jailed between eight to ten years.

The mother had threatened her son with foster care if he did not comply to the abuse, the court had heard.

Police arrested the couple previous year after being tipped off by an anonymous person.

BBC reports that the woman, Christian L, 39, was sentenced to 12 years and six months, while her husband, the boy's stepfather, Berrin T, 48, was jailed 12 years.

As well as pimping out the child, the pair also abused the boy repeatedly over a two-year period, which counted towards 60 separate identified acts of abuse.

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.

Christian L, who violated a child contact order when he lived with the boy, holds previous convictions for paedophilia.

Taha and Lais, both German nationals, were accused of rape, aggravated sexual assault of children, forced prostitution and distribution of child pornography.

The couple distributed videos of the sexual abuse across the dark net, selling it for large sums of money.

The couple was also ordered to pay 42,500 euros ($49,200) in damages to the boy and another victim, a girl.

The case only came to light following an anonymous tip in September 2017.

Mr Bürgelin then said the abuse continued out of financial incentives.

Case psychiatrist, Hartmut Pleines, quoted by Spiegel news, said the mother's claim that she was in thrall to her partner when she committed the abuse, was false.
