A 34-year-old father was convicted in Austria. According to the indictment, the man abused his sleeping child. The case is related to a large abuse complex from NRW.
In connection with the Bergisch Gladbach abuse complex, an Austrian was convicted of abusing his then four-year-old daughter. The Salzburg Regional Court imposed five months’ imprisonment and a suspended sentence of 15 months on Wednesday.
According to the indictment, the 34-year-old man is said to have made sexually past objects and photos of the deed available to a man from Germany online in 2019. The verdict is not yet legally binding.
Psychotherapy for the accused
According to former information from German and Austrian investigative authorities, the German contact person is the family man who, as a central figure in the Bergisch Gladbach abuse case, was sentenced to twelve years’ imprisonment and preventive detention as a 43-year-old last October.
The Austrian accused confessed. According to the verdict, he must also undergo psychotherapy. He had already been sentenced to three months suspended sentence in January for possession of child pornography.
The man was located after a tip from the Special Structural Organization (BAO) “Berg” of the Cologne police to Austrian colleagues. The complex has been under investigation since October 2019. In the house of a man from Bergisch Gladbach, huge amounts of child pornographic data were found. Investigators came across hundreds of other suspects through him.
