Close to four years after the high-profile implosion of Pace Airlines Inc., its co-owner, William Rodgers Sr., stood in a nearly empty Forsyth County courtroom Thursday and accepted a deal to reimburse 150 Pace employees about $445,000 in unpaid medical claims stemming from his failure to pay health-insurance premiums in exchange for avoiding jail time.

Rodgers, 62, appeared in Forsyth Superior Court Thursday, dressed in a light gray suit jacket and dark pants and flanked on both sides by his attorneys, Cheryl Andrews and Mark Calloway. He agreed to enter a deferred prosecution program to avoid jail time on one count of willful failure to pay group health-insurance premiums to Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina and 26 counts of willful failure to deliver notice to employees. He faced a possible five to 20 months in prison on each count.
