WVC 2-2-8

§2-2-8. Effect of repeal or expiration of law.

The repeal of a law, or its expiration by virtue of any

provision contained therein, shall not affect any offense

committed, or penalty or punishment incurred, before the repeal

took effect, or the law expired, save only that the proceedings

thereafter had shall conform as far as practicable to the laws in

force at the time such proceedings take place, unless otherwise

specially provided; and that if any penalty or punishment be

mitigated by the new law, such new law may, with the consent of the

party affected thereby, be applied to any judgment pronounced after

it has taken effect.
