§63-1-2. Effect of such repeal in general.
Such repeal shall not affect any offense or act committed or
done, or any penalty or forfeiture incurred, or any right
established, accrued, or accruing, before the day this code takes
effect, or any prosecution, suit or proceeding pending on that day,
except that the proceedings thereafter had shall conform, so far as
practicable, to the provisions of this code; and where any penalty,
forfeiture or punishment is mitigated by those provisions, such
provisions may, with the consent of the party affected, be applied
to any judgment to be pronounced after that day; and such repeal,
as to any statute of limitations, under which the bar of a right of
action or remedy is complete at the time the repeal takes effect,
shall not be deemed a removal of such bar, but the bar shall
continue, notwithstanding such repeal.
