Howard's Rock vandal faces additional charges and jail time

Fox Carolina reported this morning that prosecutors have filed additional charges against Micah Rogers, the western North Carolina man accused of damaging and stealing part of the iconic Howard's Rock.

The Clemson University Police Department arrested the now 20-year old Micah Rogers of Pisgah Forest, NC for the June 2, 2013 vandalism of college football icon Howard's Rock. He was charged with with malicious injury over $2,000 and trespassing and has not been to trial.


According to Fox Carolina, Thirteenth Circuit Solicitor Walt Wilkins said Rogers now faces charges of grand larceny and malicious injury to property valued at more than $10,000. Wilkins said the higher charges stem from the state's evidence showing the damage done and stolen rock was valued at more than $10,000.

The report said that Rogers was served the charges at the Pickens County Courthouse Wednesday morning and remains free on bond. Wilkins said if he is found guilty on the new charges, Rogers could face a 10-year prison sentence.
