Pedophile priest convicted by German court of 108 cases of child abuse

A German ex-priest was handed an eight-and-a-half year sentence on Thursday for 108 cases of child sexual abuse and other offenses.

The unidentified 53-year-old man will be detained in a psychiatric institution, with any possibility of future release depending on the outcome of therapy, a regional court in the southeastern town of Deggendorf ruled.

The judge said his treatment would take many years and its success was doubtful, but that a guilty plea had increased his chances of eventual release.

German court hands jail term to Chile Nazi pedophile sect doctor

BERLIN, Germany — A German court on Monday handed a five-year prison term to a doctor who fled Chile after being convicted there of complicity in child sex abuse at a Nazi pedophile sect.

The court in the western city of Krefeld upheld the Chilean prison sentence of five years and one day for Hartmut Hopp, a German citizen in his 70s, for the abuses committed at the notorious Colonia Dignidad commune.

The ruling is not yet final as his lawyer has announced plans to appeal, the DPA news agency reported.

Hopp was the right-hand man of convicted pedophile Paul Schaefer, a former Wehrmacht soldier who in 1961 founded the commune where residents were indoctrinated and kept as virtual slaves over three decades.
