Kirk Adams : Hi - my name is Kirk and I'm a Criminal Law litigation attorney. Thanks for your question.
Kirk Adams : Usually, a person can remain out on bond between the conviction and sentencing. Most judges grant this time to allow a person to get his/ her affairs in order.
Kirk Adams : That said, it's certainly possible for the judge to remand the person to the custody of the sheriff immediately.
Kirk Adams : Lit really just depends on how much of a flight risk the person is and how long it will take before the sentencing hearing can be scheduled.
Kirk Adams : Thus, the general rule is that a person can remain out on bond, but it's ultimately up to the judge.
