Nolen was arrested last June after police responded to his home on a report of a disturbance involving a weapon. He pleaded guilty in October.
Also Thursday, 37-year-old Jervonz Williams was sentenced to 19 years. He pleaded guilty in November to being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Prosecutors said Williams hit a woman in the head with a handgun last May and threatened to shoot her.
He has five prior felony convictions.
