ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – An arraignment has been scheduled for a metro Atlanta minister and his brother who are accused in an investment scheme.

The Rev. Wiley Jackson, pastor at Gospel Tabernacle Cathedral, and his brother, Rodney, were named in an eight-count indictment in December. Officials say the Jacksons’ company, Genesis LLC., was paid at least $12,000 in investments from two church members since 2002 although the Jacksons were not licensed to sell investment contracts.

Officials say the two are set to be arraigned April 12.

Officials have said investors lost their money and Genesis LLC. was not registered with the Secretary of State.

Rodney Jackson has filed a motion to remove his attorney from the case and Jerome Froelich, who represents the reverend, says he plans to plead not guilty.
