The woman, identified as Berrin T, 48, and partner, identified as Christian L., 39, were found guilty of rape, aggravated sexual assault of children, forced prostitution and distribution of child pornography.

A German mother and her partner were convicted and jailed Tuesday for repeatedly raping the woman's young son and selling him to pedophiles on the internet, abusing him for more than two years in a case that has horrified the country.

The Freiburg court jailed Berrin Taha for 12 years and six months, while her partner, Christian Lais, who was the boy's stepfather, received 12 years, the BBC reported.

They charged several thousand euros (dollars) for each instance of abuse, filmed the acts and posted them on the dark net. The court ruled that the man, who had a previous conviction for child sex offenses, must remain in preventive custody after serving his sentence.

The stepfather has a previous conviction for paedophilia.

The boy, who was nine when the trial began in June, was repeatedly sexually abused by Spanish paedophile Javier Gonzalez Diaz.

Facebook shares soar as it improves banking relationships
According to the Journal , at least one large US bank pulled away from talks with the company as a result of privacy concerns. When news of the potential partnerships became public, Facebook shares increased by about 3.5% through midday.


The couple distributed videos of the sexual abuse across the dark net, selling it for large sums of money.

The DPA news agency says that six other people have been sentenced to prison as part of the case.

The 33-year-old was also ordered to pay 18,000 euros ($20,800) to the young victim.

Local authorities have been accused of failing to protect the boy from his abusive parents, after officials removed him from his home, but returned him back weeks later.

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". Officials took the boy out of the family in March past year, but a local court sent him back weeks later.
