Exclusive 0801_aaron_hernandez_jail_letter_not_guilty_article_tmz_blurry
Aaron Hernandez
wrote a pen pal a letter from inside his jail cell, declaring his innocence, saying his murder charges are God”s plan, and vowing to return to the NFL … and our sources has a copy.

We have verified with law enforcement the letter is the real deal.  You can read it yourself … among the highlights:

— “The world just makes things out of false accusations … and it will all die down, especially when they say NOT GUILTY”

— “All the people who turned on me will feel like crap.”

— “God put me in this situation for a reason.”

— “Can”t wait to sign [autographs] again when I”m playing again an prove all the haters WRONG.”

As for the fan who received the letter … he wrote Hernandez first. The fan tell us …he sent a letter because he was in the same jail 15 years ago, and wanted to reach out to Hernandez to give him some encouragement.

FYI, Hernandez — who”s been accused of murdering semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd — has been denied bail and will remain behind bars until his trial.
