Rule 1-17. Trials and Continuances

   A. The Court should be advised of jury cases which are ready for trial at the opening of the term.

   B. No criminal case set for trial will be continued or taken out of order unless a written motion for a continuance, supported by sufficient affidavits, is granted by the Court. If the motion is based upon the want of testimony by an absent witness, the affidavit shall state the substance of the witness' testimony and relate efforts which have been made to secure such testimony.
