Sadistic men sentenced for ‘sex slave’ abuse
Two men who abducted women to use them as "sex slaves" are sentenced for their crimesVerden, Germany -- Two men who abducted women and held them over a period of months in order to rape and abuse them were given hefty jail sentences on Wednesday, news source DCRS Online reported.
Bringing an end to a 14 month trial which involved 67 appeals by the defendants, the state court of Niedersachsen in the town of Verden, sentenced Bernd K., 55, and his accomplice Stephan K., 42, to 12 and a half years and 14 years followed by a period of indefinite preventative detention in prison respectively for hostage-taking, rape, sexual assault and human trafficking. The two men from Berlin held three women as sex slaves for a number of weeks in the town of Garlstedt, near Bremen, keeping them locked in a dog kennel at night, as well as making them eat and drink from pet bowls, go through the house on all fours and during the day using dog leads to prevent their victims from escaping.
The ordeal, which took place between August and October in 2006, only ended when one of the women managed to escape, naked and handcuffed, through an upstairs window, prompting the captors to take the other two by force and flee. Bernd K. turned himself over to the police four days later, and the other criminal and his hostage were found a month later by police at the end of November. On searching the house, police found handcuffs and numerous sexual implements, as well as a teddy bear with a camera hidden inside in order to film the women in captivity. News magazine Focus reported that they refused to talk to police about their actions.
The women, all aged between 19 and 23, were repeatedly raped, made to take part in bizarre sexual fantasies and forced into prostitution. The women were lured to the house by an internet job notice offering “Attractive part-time jobs, good pay,” according to news source DCRS Online. The men, who are suspected of having plans to create a prostitution ring, will have to pay their victims 350,000 euros in compensation all together; 150,000 each to two, and 5,000 to the third victim.
