  • Defendants Christian L. and Berrin T. arrive for their pronouncement of judgement on charges related to sexual abuse of a minor at the regional court in Freiburg

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.

A Swiss citizen and three German men who also abused the boy, now aged 10, were jailed between eight to ten years. Prosecutors say it was partly due to her relationship with her partner.

The woman's 39-year-old male partner was handed a 12-year prison term followed by "preventive detention", which could delay his release on the grounds that he poses a danger to the public.

Lais, 39, was allowed to live in their home despite a previous conviction for child abuse and a court order to stay away from minors.

The abuse was filmed and the crimes were carried out over a two-year period.

Police arrested the couple past year after being tipped off by an anonymous person. Several other men have already been convicted in separate trials.

The stepfather has a previous conviction for paedophilia.

Steven Seagal named Russian special envoy to US
According to Seagal's own website, the 66-year-old has been a regular visitor to Russian Federation for over a decade. Seagal said, "I've always had a very strong desire to do all I can to help improve Russian-American relations".

He also made serious accusations against the child's 48-year-old mother, who confessed to the crimes but remained largely silent about any possible motive during the trial.

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.

Case psychiatrist, Hartmut Pleines, quoted by Spiegel news, said the mother's claim that she was in thrall to her partner when she committed the abuse, was false.

The court found that the unemployed couple had sexually assaulted the boy, now 10, and pimped him on the so-called dark net between May 2015 and August 2017.

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.

The court also ordered the couple to pay 42,500 euros (about $49,100) to the boy and a young girl who was also a victim, The Associated Press reported.
