CNN Breaking News

A letter believed to have been written by Ariel Castro that investigators retrieved from his Cleveland home was displayed at his sentencing hearing today. The letter reads, in part, "Bottom line is, I am a sexual predator."

Castro pleaded guilty last week to 937 counts, including murder and kidnapping, in a deal that dropped a possible death penalty in exchange for life in prison plus 1,000 years.

Images from inside Castro's home were shown in court. One bedroom had stuffed animals, toys, an easel and a beside toilet. The windows were boarded up, the door locked from the outside and it had a hole cut in it for ventilation.

Other photos showed the basement and a chain where Castro restrained his victims.
