The court sentenced the lead defendant’s mother, 46, to five years for her role as an accessory.

The case is one of three major abuse cases in the German state of North Rhine Westphalia to come to light in recent years.

After being uncovered in June 2020 following investigations centering on a garden summer house, it led to arrests in other states and abroad.

Five men had already been sentenced, and more than 50 suspects identified, of whom about 30 were in custody.
