Is your fiance represented by legal counsel? Also, she they say the tech has disappeared, they mean they can not find her?
Thank you. His PD should file a motion to compel. The DA can not withhold evidence and if they do, the Judge could dismiss the case, as a result of the misconduct. The Judge can step in and advise the DA to obtain these results/lab work and the Judge will also find it hard to believe that nobody 1) knows when she will be back unless she is missing and 2) that nobody else has access to this. If she got fired tomorrow or quit, someone would have to take over and access this, so their argument lacks merit. If there is misconduct by the prosecution, his PD could ask that the case be dismissed.

I do understand. If he asked for a continuance, he likely wants to still work on the case and see if this person "appears" especially if the results are favorable.
