Unemployed Alderson carried out a series of sickening indecent assaults on the five year old male victim whilst he had been trusted to babysit him
Repeated attacks took place over a 12 month period.
Alderson was aged 24 when the abuse first took place.
The court was told that during the abuse, Alderson would strip off and then force the child to get naked. Sexual touching and molestation then took place.
When he was arrested, perverted Alderson denied the accusations made against him, which forced the now adult victim to give evidence against him.
Alderson has not at any time shown any remorse for his actions
The jury delivered a unanimous verdict of guilty on the first count of indecent assault, and they reached a majority verdict of 10:2 on the second count.
The judge sentenced Alderson to 3 years & 3 months imprisonment, of which he must serve half.
