(h) Continuances or other delays may be granted as follows: (1) By stipulation: Upon written agreement of the parties, which must be signed by the defendant or all defendants, and with the express approval of the court. The agreement shall be effective when approved by the court on the record or in writing. (2) By motion: On motion of the prosecuting authority, the court, or a party, the court may continue the case when required in the administration of justice and defendant will not be substantially prejudiced in the presentation of his or her defense. The motion must be filed on or before the date set for trial or the last day of any continuance or extension granted pursuant to this rule. The court must state on the record or in writing the reasons for the continuance. If the court grants the continuance, it may also impose such terms as would be equitable.
