We're getting our first look at chilling letters written by a man in jail who's pleaded guilty to raping a 5-year-old girl.
Prosecutors say Kyle Hancock wrote about his elaborate plans to frame someone else for the crime, then talks about the vile details of what he did that night.
He pleaded guilty on Wednesday – the day his trial was to begin – after the district attorney got ahold of those letters and got a glimpse into Hancock's mind.
The hundreds of letters range from desperation to a type of remorse.
He talks about how he desires kids and has molested others, even claiming he's been doing it since he was a teenager.

"He talks about in his words, how much easier it is to do this to someone else's child. And that just really is... there are no words for that," Tulsa County Assistant District Attorney Sarah McAmis said.
McAmis still is in shock after reading the hundreds of letters. Hancock pleaded guilty to raping a 5-year-old-girl after breaking into her Tulsa home a year ago.
Investigators said Hancock wrote the letters while he awaited his trial date.

“In the very beginning, when he was first jailed, he really tries to focus on that he's innocent and claiming that someone else set him up for all of this,” McAmis said. “And then he kind of goes through a period where he goes through trying to set someone else up so that he can get out."
Hancock wrote: “I'm about to go down for a crime I did not commit. I am being framed."
"He goes into great detail asking people to manufacture evidence, to plant evidence, to do anything that's necessary to get him off and to get him out of jail, no matter who goes down in the process," McAmis said.
Hancock described his plan to frame a family friend: "Put some hair in his truck and put hair on the glue. Don't touch his truck without gloves or a hair net. Don't let anybody see you."
At one point, he muses: “A real lawyer will get me off because off temporary insanity."
But as time passes, Mcamis said Hancok's ramblings took a turn.
“Ultimately, in the end he's very clear and very detailed in confessing exactly what he did to this little girl,” McAmis said.
One letter states: "The rape happened.”
“I remember the mother trying to fight me off,” he wrote. “I remember jumping through the window, which I was only able to do because there was a light in the kitchen. I remember putting my clothes back on outside.
"What I did was very horriable (sic)."
He eventually acts remorseful, writing the child, deserves justice."
But McAmis said, after everything Hancock wrote, she doesn't believe it.
“This little girl was 5, I mean she was just a baby,” McAmis said. “She didn't deserve any of this whatsoever, and she will literally be affected for the entire rest of her life over this, how dare he."
Hancock claims in one of letters that he videotaped the rape of the child and left instructions on how it could be deleted so it couldn't be used against him if he went to trial.
A judge will sentence him in June.
