German couple convicted of rape, online sale of young son

The couple allowed four other men to sexually abuse the boy — among them a German soldier, a Swiss man and a Spaniard who admitted paying the couple 10,000 euros ($11,560) to rape the boy multiple times and was convicted in a separate trial Monday. 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. Officials took the boy away from his mother in March last year following vague indications from police that he might be at risk, but a local court sent him back weeks later on condition that she not allow any contact between the child and her partner.
