A German couple have been jailed for selling their 9-year-old son to paedophiles for sex on the dark web.
The Freiburg state court in southwestern Germany convicted the couple of serious sexual abuse of children, 21 counts in his case and 19 in hers. They saw their sentences trimmed because they helped lead authorities to the other abusers.
On Monday, the same court sentenced a Spanish paedophile, Javier Gonzalez Diaz, to 10 years' prison for repeatedly sexually abusing the young boy after paying the parents.
Six other people were arrested along with the couple last autumn - with several men already convicted in separate trials.
Her husband Christian Lais, the boy's stepfather whom he called "papa", received a 12-year sentence followed by preventive detention.
The couple were found guilty of rape, sexual assault of children, forced prostitution and distribution of child pornography.
The stepfather has a previous conviction for paedophilia, the AFP reported.
In one of the worst cases of child abuse in German history, a sentence of 12 years and 6 months was handed down to a 48-year-old woman, Berrin T and it is expected that her partner, Christian L, will receive a similar sentence.
In Tuesday's verdict, the couple was ordered to pay a total 30,000 euros ($34,650) in compensation to the boy and 12,500 euros to the girl they abused previously.
They also admitted they had sexually abused their son, who was nine at the time.
The mother was often near the scene of the abuse by other men "to exert a calming influence on her child", and in the case of one client participated herself, the court said.
Police in the town of Baden-Württemberg reported they had arrested a number of suspects in September 2017, reported Deutsche Welle.
The mother's partner was supposed to be banned from having contact with children following his earlier abuse conviction.
