A mother and her husband who repeatedly raped her young son and sold him for sex on the internet for more than two years have been jailed.

Berrin Taha, 48, and Christian Lais, 39, pimped the boy, now aged 10, for thousands on the dark web from their home in Staufen, Germany between May 2015 and August 2017.

Both admitted to their crimes in court where Taha was today jailed for 12-and-a-half years and Lais for 12 years.

The boy is in foster care where he is doing well ‘under the circumstances,’ according to a state lawyer.

Lais, the boy’s stepfather whom he called ‘papa’, had a previous conviction for child abuse, raising questions why he was allowed to live in a home with a child present.

Taha said she only went only with the abuse to please Lais but then continued for the money.

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

They were ordered to pay a total of £38,000 in damages to the boy and another victim, a girl.

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

On Monday, the same court sentenced a Spanish paedophile, Javier Gonzalez Diaz, to 10 years’ prison for repeatedly sexually abusing the young boy after paying the parents.

The 33-year-old was also ordered to pay £16,000 to the young victim.

The case came to light following an anonymous tip-off last September, and led to the arrest of eight people who have been charged with belonging to an online paedophile ring.
