(b) Excluded Time. The following periods are excluded from the computation of time limits in these rules.
(1) Delays Occasioned by or on Behalf of the Juvenile. Delays occasioned by or behalf of the juvenile are excluded including the following:
(A) delays caused by an examination and hearing to determine competence, and if the juvenile is found incompetent, the time for restoration to competence;
(B) delays resulting from continuances requested by the juvenile and granted by the court under Rule 216(d);
(C) delays resulting from the juvenile being referred to a diversion or community-based alternative program, and
(D) the juvenile's absence.
(2) Surrender on, or Execution of, an Arrest Warrant. The court must exclude a reasonable amount of time, not exceeding 30 days, for the parties to prepare for a hearing after the juvenile's surrender on an arrest warrant or a court appearance following the execution of an arrest warrant.
(3) Calendar Congestion. Delays necessitated by the court's calendar congestion are excluded only when the congestion is attributable to extraordinary circumstances.
