German couple jailed for selling child

A German mother and her boyfriend were jailed after the repeated rape of the mother’s son, as well as for selling the child for sex.

The couple were accused of abusing and raping the 10-year-old child for around two years and of selling the child on the darkweb.  They also filmed all the abuse.

The Court in Freiburg sentenced the couple to 12 years in prison for rape, sexual abuse and forced prostitution. The mother’s boyfriend, who had previously been accused of sexual misconduct on minors, will remained in custody after he serves his sentence.
