A German court has found a 101-year-old former concentration camp guard guilty of being an accessory to thousands of murders and sentenced him to five years in prison — the latest in a string of prosecutions of ex-Nazis in the country.

The centenarian — who has maintained his innocence throughout his months-long trial in Neuruppin state court in east Germany — was convicted Tuesday of more than 3,500 counts of accessory to murder.

Prosecutors accused him of being an accessory to the murder of thousands of Jews, political prisoners and other minorities persecuted by the Nazis at the Sachsenhausen concentration camp from 1942 to 1945.
