Six men who paid to abuse the boy will serve between eight and 10 years; the mother, Berrin T., will serve 12.5; her partner, Christian L., will serve 12.

Following a criminal probe that even seasoned investigators said pushed them to the emotional limit, the regional court in Freiburg sentenced the boy's mother, Berrin Taha, to 12 and a half years in prison.

Prosecutors say it was partly due to her co-dependent relationship with her partner.

Her husband Christian Lais, the boy's stepfather whom he called "papa", received a 12-year sentence followed by preventive detention.

The twisted pair and six others were part of a pedophile ring that was busted previous year following an anonymous tip.

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.

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.

The stepfather has a previous conviction for paedophilia, the AFP reported.

The mother confessed to the crimes during the trial but did not reveal her motive.

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 couple distributed videos of the sexual abuse across the dark net, selling it for large sums of money.

Local authorities in Germany have been accused of failing to protect the boy, who now lives with a foster family.

They charged several thousand euros for each instance of abuse, filmed the acts and posted them on the darknet.

Police started investigating after receiving an anonymous tip in 2017.
