  • German couple jailed for selling son, 9, to paedophiles on dark web

As well as pimping out the child, the pair also abused the boy repeatedly over a two-year period, which counted towards 60 separate identified acts of abuse.

She received a jail term of 12 and a half years, and the stepfather was sentenced to 12 years for the torment they put her son, aged nine at the time, through.

Their sentences fell short of what prosecutors had demanded - 14 years and six months for Taha and 13 years and six months for Lais.

It led to the arrest of eight people who have been charged with belonging to an online paedophile ring.

Barcelona offer two players plus significant fee for Paul Pogba
Jose Mourinho tells ESPN FC that the World Cup was the ideal habitat for Paul Pogba as he could 'only think about football '. This is given the limited time available to sign a replacement for the French midfielder, according to Goal.

The couple were found guilty of rape, sexual assault of children, forced prostitution and distribution of child pornography.

A German court on Tuesday handed down lengthy jail sentences to a couple for repeatedly sexually abusing their now 10-year old son.

The mother's partner, who already had a previous conviction of serious child abuse, confessed to the court in June that he was the "driving force" behind the crimes. The girl, who had mental health issues, had on several occasions been given to the 48-year-old woman by her mother to care for her.

The trial has also raised concerns that officials might sometimes wrongly presume that a woman is incapable of abusing her own child.

Sanctions will also be reapplied to US imports of Iranian carpets and foodstuffs and on certain related financial transactions. In this July 30, 2018, photo, an Iranian street money exchanger holds a USA banknote in downtown Tehran, Iran.

In Tuesday's verdict, the couple were ordered to pay a total of 42,500 euros (£38,000) in compensation to the boy and another victim, a young girl.

Police started investigating after receiving an anonymous tip in 2017. The mom said she went along with the abuse at first out of fear of losing her boyfriend - then later for "financial motives", the judge said.

The woman's partner was supposed to be banned from having contact with children, due to his previous conviction.

The case has shocked German society - and local authorities have been accused of failing to protect the boy, who now lives with a foster family.
