Looking here for comments about Chauvin's jury's decision day.

If found guilty, will he be handcuffed in court? If found guilty, will he be free, while on appeal? (we know it will be appealed) What should we all expect IF it's a guilty verdict? ( i hope he goes to prison while the appeal is ongoing)

If he's found guilty, he's going away in handcuffs, just like he did every day of the trial ... marble falls Apr 2021 #3

I think he is out on bail now, but I'm not positive. I suppose that if judge sentences him later, Hoyt Apr 2021 #7

Me too. I can't see him acquitted, although I suppose some holdout might hang the jury. Hoyt Apr 2021 #11

If it's one of the more serious charges, then I doubt he gets out on bail.

If it's the lowest of the charges, then you can bet he'll be eligible for bail, and out by the end of the day.

"If he is convicted on any of the three counts, he will be immediately taken into custody.

“Right from the courtroom, he will go to jail and he will be held in jail until sentencing. If there is a prison sentence, which of course there would be, he would go to prison,” attorney Joe Tamburino said."

He should, upon conviction, go to jail, go directly to jail, do not pass go, do not collect $200.00.

... I think he'll be found guilty of manslaughter, maybe 3rd Degree Murder.

he might be eligible to continue on release or the Judge could order him handcuffed right then.

But who knows for sure. In event of conviction, Chauvin ain't gonna look good because his last hope to escape this is gone.

Edit: Looks like TwilightZone has the definitive answer.
