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

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.

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

A court in Friburg, southern Germany, has jailed a woman and her spouse for selling her son to paedophiles on the dark net for sex.

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. Some of the abuse was filmed. It said the mother was aware from the start of the man's pedophile tendencies and previous conviction.

High temperatures, low humidity and afternoon winds along with low fuel moistures are aiding large fire growth, officials said. Its intensity was so great at one point, that it generated a tornado-like whirl of fire - as well as its own weather system.

The pair and six others were arrested last autumn, and several men have already been convicted in separate trials.

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

The court found that the couple had sexually assaulted and raped the boy for years, and sold him on the so-called dark net to pedophiles between May 2015 and August 2017.

In Tuesday's verdict, the couple were ordered to pay a total of 42,500 euros (£38,000) in compensation to the boy and another victim, a young girl.

He also made serious accusations against the child's mother.

Police exposed the paedophile ring after they received an anonymous tip-off from a member of the public.

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

Katja Ravat, the child's lawyer, said the mother had not shown remorse at any point during trial, adding that she "had hoped that [the defendant] would make a statement, issue a written apology to her child, or at least explains to him why she did it".
