Albert Tony Walker:
When Albert Tony Walker was asked Feb. 23 if he was ready to enter a plea on 16 counts of rape, he stood silent for about 30 seconds before answering.

“Yes sir, I guess so,” he finally said before entering an Alford plea on all counts, thus closing one of the most bizarre cases in Rabun County history.

Superior Court Judge Linton “Kim” Crawford then sentenced Walker to 10 years of prison followed by 10 years of probation as part of a negotiated plea.

Albert Tony Walker:
By the time he walked into a Rabun County courtroom Wednesday, Albert Tony Walker was no longer calling himself a prophet who would create the Third Testament of the Bible.

He was just a 63-year-old man in an orange-and-white-striped prison jumpsuit — bespectacled, silver-haired, seemingly harmless.

Albert Tony Walker Details of underground bunkers, end-of-world fears and terrified victims emerged today at a bond hearing for a self-proclaimed prophet charged with rape.

The man, Albert Tony Walker, 62, was described as the head of an isolated religious organization called The Church.

“He saw himself as the Third Testament,” said Assistant District Attorney Penny Crowder, of the Mountain Judicial District in Rabun County. “There was God and Jesus, and then there is him.”
