- (a) Alibi. A defendant who intends to rely on an alibi shall, within 10 days after a written demand by the prosecuting attorney, furnish the prosecuting attorney with a signed statement of alibi, specifying the specific place or places at which the defendant claims to have been at the time of the alleged offense and the names and addresses of the witnesses upon whom the defendant intends to rely to establish the alibi. Within 10 days after receipt of the statement of alibi, the prosecuting attorney shall, on written demand, furnish the defendant or defendant's attorney with the names and addresses of the witnesses upon whom the State intends to rely to establish defendant's presence at the scene of the alleged offense. The court may order any amendment to or amplification of the alibi statement as required in the interest of justice.

If the information required by paragraph (a) of this rule is not furnished, the court may refuse to permit the party in default to present witnesses at trial as to defendant's presence at or absence from the scene of the alleged offense or may make any other order or grant any adjournment or continuance as may be required in the interest of justice.
