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.
