Charles Taylor will be held in custody until his final sentencing on 30th May.
Before that time, his defence team has the option of appealing the charges he was found guilty of. The case would then pass on to Appeals Chamber of the Special Court, whose decision is final.
If there is no appeal, Mr Taylor is likely to be given a prison sentence, which he would serve in the UK.
