Couple jailed for selling 9-year-old son to paedophiles online

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

They were both sentenced to 12 years in prison in a case that has horrified the country.

Two years

The sickening abuse lasted for more than two years, the Freiburg state court heard this week. A 33-year-old Spanish man who was offered the boy for sex by his mother was found guilty of repeatedly raping him.

The man, whose name wasn’t released for German privacy reasons, was sentenced to ten years in prison and fined €18,000 euros (Sh 2 Million).

He admitted paying the woman and her partner €10,000 euros (Sh 1 Million) to rape the boy multiple times in the town of Staufen in southern Germany.

Anonymous

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

Three German men and one Swiss citizen have already been convicted in separate trials.

The Freiburg state court ruled that the 39-year-old man must remain in preventive custody after serving his sentence.
