    Answered . Minnesota Rules of Criminal Procedure allow for a stay of execution of sentence pending appeal. You must establish the appeal is not frivolous and the Defendant will remain law abiding during the stay. The ultimate decision is up to the judge. I have had some judges grant a stay and some have not or would not until appeal was filed.
