Art. 714.  Continuance to defendants jointly indicted

When defendants are jointly indicted and a continuance is granted to one of them, the court may grant a continuance to any of the others, on his motion.  However, a continuance granted to one defendant shall not deprive other jointly indicted defendants of a prompt trial unless the state can show good ground for continuance as to them.

Amended by Acts 1968, No. 143, §1.
