German couple JAILED for raping son and selling him to paedophiles

A German couple was tossed behind bars for 12 years Tuesday for selling custom-made online videos of them sexually abusing their son.

One of the convicted Germans, a 44-year-old man, was allowed to rape the boy but was stopped by his mother after he expressed his wish to kill him.

Her partner, Christian L, was sentenced to 12 years by the court in Freiburg.

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.

Berrin was sentenced to 12 years and six months by a court in Freiburg, while Christian, the boy's stepfather, was jailed for 12 years.

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

The 33-year-old was also ordered to pay €18,000 (S$28,464) to the young victim.

When babies consume breast milk, they are less likely to develop respiratory illnesses, diabetes, and other diseases. Exclusive breastfeeding also helps to bring about bonding of baby and mother and helps delay a new pregnancy.

They were convicted of rape, aggravated sexual assault of children, forced prostitution and distribution of child pornography, judge Stefan Buergelin said as he read out the verdict.

"A local youth welfare office took custody of the child in March 2017, when it became known that Christian L. - who is subject to a child contact ban - was living in the same house", Deutsche Welle reported.

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.

Six other offenders have been handed lengthy prison sentences as part of the case.

They charged several thousand euros for each instance of abuse, filmed the acts and posted them on the darknet.

Officials took the boy away from his mother in March a year ago 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. His lawyer told reporters Tuesday that he was doing well "under the circumstances".
