The jury, of course, finds Tom Robinson guiltyof raping Mayella Ewell.  This happens right at the end of Chapter 21.

In Chapter 20, we find out a secret about Dolphus Raymond.  What we find out is that he is not really usually drinking any kind of alcohol from out of his brown paper bag.  Instead, he is just drinking Coke.  Mr. Raymond pretends to be a drunk so that he can do what he wants -- he uses being drunk as an excuse.  He wants to do as he pleases, but he can't just do it and tell people he doesn't care what they think -- he has to have an excuse for why he behaves that way.
