British Pedophile Sentenced to 10 Years for Sex Attack on 14-Month-Old Girl

Pedophile jailed for 10 years after raping 14-month-old baby in UK

A British pedophile who left a 14-month-old girl severely injured after sexually assaulting her has been jailed for 10 years.

Alan Kusz, 43, sexually abused the baby in her family home in Kilwinning, North Ayrshire, Scotland, in April 2018.

Kusz originally told the High Court in Glasgow that the baby’s mother was responsible for the injuries, which a doctor described as the ‘most severe’ they had ever seen.

Kusz claimed he found the infant “screaming in pain’ while visiting the home.

Dailymail.co.uk reports: But he was convicted of the assault in Glasgow last month and returned to court in Edinburgh today for sentencing following psychological reports.

Judge Lord Armstrong said Kusz had ‘limited awareness and empathy’ over the pain he caused the ‘vulnerable’ victim and criticised him for continuing to deny any wrong doing.

He said: ‘The author of the report suggests that you lack insight into your offending and that you present a significant risk of re-offending of a similar serious nature.

‘Society has an abhorrence of such conduct and it is the responsibility of the court to reflect what. Young and vulnerable children are all entitled to care and protection.

‘It is important that those who might be disposed to commit crimes of sexual abuse against children, in the way that you did, understand that they are likely to receive significant custodial penalties once brought to justice.’ 

At proceedings earlier this year, the court heard how the ‘world came crashing down’ for the child’s mother after her daughter was left badly injured on April 9, 2018.

In her speech to jurors, prosecutor Lisa Gillespie said: ‘There was her obvious upset when she described what she saw.’

The court heard how the youngster ended up needing surgery and a paediatrician said the injury was the ‘most severe’ he had ever seen.

Kusz was later arrested and DNA linked him to where the attack took place.

The court heard that the child had recovered from surgery but that it was ‘difficult’ to say what the future holds for her.

On Tuesday, judge Lord Armstrong also placed Kusz on the Sex Offenders Register for life.

The court heard that the assault on the girl has affected her continuing development.

Lord Armstrong added: ‘It is clear that your actions have had a massively negative effect on her ongoing development and that she exhibits the manifest consequences of her resulting physical and emotional trauma.

‘The sentence which I now impose on you, commensurate with my public duty, is one of a period of imprisonment for 10 years.’
