German couple convicted for selling son online for sex

Defendants Christian L. and Berrin T. arrive for their pronouncement of judgement on charges related to sexual abuse of a minor at the regional court in Freiburg

The 48-year-old woman was sentenced Tuesday by Freiburg state court to 12-and-a-half years prison, and her 39-year-old partner sentenced to 12 years.

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.

A German court handed down lengthy jail sentences to Berrin Taha (held by policeman) and her husband Christian Lais (sitting left) for pimping their son online.

A German mother has been jailed for selling her young son for sex on the internet.

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

They charged several thousand euros (dollars) for each instance of abuse, filmed the acts and posted them on the dark net.

The mother's partner, who already had a previous conviction of serious child abuse, confessed to the court in June that he was the "driving force" behind the crimes.

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

The DPA news agency says that six other people have been sentenced to prison as part of the case.

The mother was often near the scene of the abuse by other men "to exert a calming influence on her child", and in the case of one client participated herself, the court said.

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

In Tuesday's verdict, the couple was ordered to pay a total 30,000 euros ($34,650) in compensation to the boy and 12,500 euros to the girl they abused previously.

The mother's partner was supposed to be banned from having contact with children following his earlier abuse conviction.

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.
