A DeKalb County megachurch pastor and his brother have been indicted on fraud charges, according to the WSBTV.
Gospel Tabernacle Church Pastor Bishop Wiley Jackson and his brother Rodney Jackson are facing eight felony counts for allegedly violating the Georgia Securities Act.
DeKalb District Attorney Robert James told WSBTV that the brothers misled their congregation in investing into Genesis LLC, a securities entity that was not registered by the state of Georgia.
Arrest warrants have been issued for both Jackson brothers. Pastor Jackson released a statement to WSBTV stating that he was surprised to learn of the indictment and asserting that there has been no wrongdoing. He added that he is currently out of town and cannot respond until he reads the indictment.
