Judge Lori Walkey entered a “Not Guilty” plea for Nolen Thursday afternoon, despite his protests.

When he was led out of the courtroom, News 9 asked if he had anything to say.  He responded, “I’m not Jesus, I’m the Anti-Christ.”

In court, Nolen also muttered several passages quoting the Muslim religion.
