Local media outlets report a jury of seven women and five men was seated Monday and will return to court in Pickens on Tuesday to hear opening arguments.
Micah Rogers of Pisgah Forest, North Carolina, is charged with grand larceny and malicious injury to property. He faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
Authorities say Rogers broke into the stadium in June of 2013, damaged the case around the rock and chipped off a piece of the stone.
The defense wanted the trial moved, saying it's being held too close to Clemson. The judge denied that request.
