Will Tom DeLay have to do the perp walk?
He is going to have to go back to Austin and surrender. Will Ronnie Earle let him show up with his lawyer or will DeLay be arrested at the airport and taken to the courthouse in cuffs?

2. Only if convicted, and that's a long time away.
CNN was speculating at at least a year.

3. Not so
Lots of criminals are paraded for the cameras after being indicted.

8. No: perp walk comes after indictment or even arrest
Which is one of the reasons the organized perp walk is a point of contention among legal scholars.

Perp walk does not wait for conviction.
