One of the eight suspects in the Staufener abuse case admitted to raping a boy on three occasions. He admitted that he had met the boy’s parents on darknet chatrooms and gotten together with the parents, other suspected rapists, and the young boy.
The Freiburg court sentenced the 37-year-old man from Switzerland to nine years in prison followed by an unknown length of supervised release. The man also owes the boy 14,000 euros as compensation. That money, though, will never reach the hands of the child.
The boy’s mother and her partner “auctioned” the child on darknet child abuse forums and chatrooms. This information surfaced after the takedown of Tabooless Chat. Although the boy’s mother and her companion started charging pedophiles to abuse the boy in 2015, the Tabooless takedowntied many of the abuse suspects together.
Other sentences in the case:
- One man ten years imprisonment with subsequent preventive detention.
- Another man from Schleswig-Holsteiner received a eight year prison sentence.
- And yet another—the former soldier—also received an eight year prison sentence.
