I am sorry for the delay, but your reply to me came after midnight, when I had already turned off my computer for the night.
You did not actually ask a question, but I assume your friend is wondering what to do under these circumstances. Based on what I see, if your friend wants to go to trial on her case and she expects to win with an alibi defense, she's going to need the information which will exonorate her. She should talk to her lawyer, but if there's no other way to establish her alibi than to have the transcript she is seeking, she's going to have to agree to the continuance to get the evidence she needs.
Otherwise, what good is a quick trial if she ends up convicted of the charges?
Again, there may be some other way to establish her alibi and she can brainstorm that with her lawyer. Or there may be a better defense than an alibi defense that could get her acquitted. That too would be something that her lawyer would know. But if neither of these sentences apply, she needs to wait for the transcripts.
I think this is what you want to know. If not, please reply and clarify your question.
