In the letter, he claims that he had been "sexually assaulted by jail staff, beat up and tied in a chair to the point the skin came off my arms."

"Please be my hero," he reportedly wrote, according to TMZ. "My hands are damaged from the abuse in jail so I'm sorry for the soppy [sic.] writing and spelling."

Exotic submitted a 257-page plea Trump asking for a pardon from his 22-year prison sentence after being charged with involvement in a murder-for-hire plot.
