Continuances.

Any party to a parole revocation hearing, or his or her counsel, who desires a continuance shall, immediately upon receipt of notice of hearing, or as soon thereafter as circumstances requiring such continuance come to his knowledge, notify the board by telephone followed by a written request stating in detail the reasons why such continuance is necessary.
Requests for continuances shall arrive at the board offices in Olympia not less than seventy-two hours prior to the scheduled hearing. The board or member thereof, in passing upon a request for continuance, shall consider whether such request was promptly and timely made for good cause and whether the parolee will be substantially prejudiced in the presentation of his or her defense. The board may continue a hearing on its own motion if local prosecution is pending or if other circumstances require rescheduling. Appropriate board staff will notify all parties when continuances are granted. During a parole revocation hearing, if it appears in the public interest or in the interest of justice that further testimony or argument should be received, the member or members conducting the hearing may, in their discretion or upon motion of counsel, continue the hearing and fix a date for the introduction of additional evidence or presentation or argument. Such oral notice shall constitute the final notice of such continued hearing.
