German court to issue verdict on incest father

A German court is preparing to issue its verdict in the case of a man who fathered eight children with his stepdaughter and is charged with hundreds of counts of sexual abuse.
The 48-year-old defendant, identified only as Detlef S., confessed during his trial to 350 counts of sexually abusing his children and forcing his daughter and stepdaughter into prostitution between 1987 and 2010.
He is widely expected to be found guilty Tuesday when the Koblenz state court issues its ruling. But his defense attorney has recommended only 9 1/2 years in prison, while prosecutors are seeking 14 1/2 year sentence and a special ruling that would keep him behind bars indefinitely after that as a dangerous offender.
