German 'incest trucker' jailed

22 march 2011, 17:39
A German court jailed for 14 and a half years on Tuesday an ex-trucker for sexually abusing his daughter, stepson and stepdaughter, with whom he fathered eight children, AFP reports.

In a trial that shocked the country and drew comparisons with the infamous 2009 case of Austrian Josef Fritzl, the man, named only as Detlef S., subjected his family to a horrendous ordeal for more than 20 years, the court found.

The 48-year-old had confessed in the trial in Koblenz, western Germany to 162 counts of sexual assault and grievous sexual assault of minors in a house of horror in the tiny nearby village of Fluterschen.

The unremarkable man with glasses and greying, receding hair confirmed fathering eight children, one of whom died, with his stepdaughter, who is now 28.

He also admitted prostituting his stepdaughter and his biological daughter out to others. Reports said he charged 40 deutschmarks and later 30-50 euros (42-69 dollars) per time, allegedly while he watched.

The sentence demanded by the prosecution -- 14 years and six months -- was just under the maximum possible of 15 years. His defence lawyers argued the sentence should be reduced to nine years and six months.

Several German media outlets have compared the case to Fritzl, who held his daughter Elisabeth as a sex slave in a cramped, homemade dungeon in Austria for 24 years. He was jailed for life in 2009.
