ATLANTA (AP) - Charges have been dropped against a metro Atlanta minister and his brother who were accused of bilking members of their congregation out of thousands of dollars.

Rev. Wiley Jackson, of the Gospel Tabernacle Cathedral and his brother, Rodney, were accused of selling investments without a license. DeKalb County District Attorney's officials Tuesday said the two have repaid investors $90,000.

An eight-count indictment charged the two with selling investments in their company, Genesis LLC and receiving at least $12,000 from investors beginning in 2002.

Authorities say the Jacksons paid seven investors from an escrow account.
