MADRID – A couple face 63 years in jail for prostituting their own handicapped children for orgies.
The couple, who cannot be named, are to stand trial next week for the rape and abuse of their two children.
They allegedly allowed a neighbour to pay to join in an orgy in which he abused their children.
The prosecutor has asked the father should be jailed for 33 years, the mother 27 and the neighbour for 33.
The youngest boy is 12 and has 39 percent mental disablement, according to medical reports.
His sister is more seriously mentally disabled. Medics said she had 53 percent mental disability.
The abuses started in 2002.
The parents started sexual relations with their children and the neighbour paid to rape them and force them to carry out sex acts.
The parents and neighbour often threatened the children when they tried to escape.
The court case is due to start on 17 April in Madrid.
The neighbour, who is now 77, will stand accused with the parents in court.
