Couple jailed for selling son to paedophiles on dark web

They were also convicted of repeatedly raping the young boy and filming the abuse

The 48-year-old woman and her 39-year-old partner were also convicted of repeatedly raping the boy, now 10, and filming the abuse.

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.

Berrin was sentenced to 12½ years in prison while Christian received a 12-year sentence in Freiburg state court.

On Monday, the same German court sentenced a Spanish pedophile, Javier Gonzalez Diaz, to 10 years behind bars for paying the parents to sexually abuse the same boy over and over again.

The twisted pair and six others were part of a pedophile ring that was busted past year following an anonymous tip.

Christian L, who violated a child contact order when he lived with the boy, holds previous convictions for paedophilia. Several men have already been convicted in separate trials.

The disturbing case sent shockwaves through the country as authorities were accused of failing to protect the boy.

In a series of tweets , he said Attorney General Jeff Sessions must halt the inquiry into alleged election meddling. Mueller is a Republican who was appointed as Federal Bureau of Investigation director by President George W.

The trial has also raised concerns that officials might sometimes wrongly presume that a woman is incapable of abusing her own child.

The couple were found guilty of rape, 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 Freiburg court also ordered the two abusers to pay 42 500 euros (49 200 dollars) in damages to the boy and a young girl, another victim in the case.

The verdict against the mother and stepfather in the case, which police have called one of the most atrocious they have investigated, is expected on Tuesday.

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

Officials took the boy away from his mother in March past year 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.
