A French court on Friday sentenced the uncle and mother of three teenagers to jail for raping and assaulting the girls in voodoo exorcism sessions.
The uncle, a 28-year-old Togolese man, was sentenced to 14 years for raping his niece in the guise of "chasing out an evil spirit", as well as for assaults against the girl's two older sisters.
The victims' mother, 41, got seven years for complicity as she had even supplied the condoms used in the crime.
"She more or less delivered her daughter to the rapist," the prosecutor said.
