L CrRLJ 3.3 (h) Continuances. (3) Any requests for continuance, made orally in open court or in writing by Defendant’s counsel or the Defendant, shall require the Court to reinform the Defendant of his or her speedy trial rights before the motion is granted or denied. The Court shall not grant a motion for continuance beyond the Defendant’s originally calculated speedy trial time, unless the Defendant (or Defendant’s counsel, upon counsel’s representation that the Defendant has been informed of his or her speedy trial rights and has authorized counsel to waive them) signs a Waiver of Speedy Trial upon a form supplied by the Court. The Defendant or counsel must understand, before signing the waiver, that the Court will be waiving the Defendant’s speedy trial rights to a date certain, upon which date the applicable 60 day or 90 day period will begin to run anew.
