A 48-year-old woman and her 39-year-old partner (himself a convicted pedophile) have been convicted of selling the woman's now-10-year-old son on the darknet to pedophiles and raping and abusing him themselves, per the Local.
On Tuesday, the Freidburg court convicted the couple for forced prostitution, rape, sexual and physical abuse, humiliation and bondage in nearly 60 separate identified acts.
Lais, 39, had a previous conviction for child abuse, raising questions why he was allowed to live in a home with a child present.
The dark net is an area of the internet that can not be found in conventional search engines, and is only accessible through secret browser networks.
A Swiss citizen and three German men who also abused the boy, now aged 10, were jailed between eight to ten years.
The sickening abuse lasted for more than two years, the Freiburg state court heard this week.
The horrific crimes have shocked the small town of Staufen in southern Germany.
In May 2015, the couple started abusing the woman's son, with the man at first offering the child cash.
