A paedophile who left a baby girl severely injured after sexually assaulting her before trying to blame her mother has been jailed for 10 years.
Alan Kusz, 43, attacked the 14-month-old in her family home in Kilwinning, North Ayrshire, Scotland, in April 2018.
The High Court in Glasgow heard how Kusz claimed her mother was responsible for the injuries, which a doctor described as the 'most severe' they had ever seen.
Kusz, who was known to her mother, said he found the girl 'screaming in pain' while visiting the property.
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
