F 16.140.1 n1 Battery Against Former Spouse (PC 243(e)(1)): ISSUE ALERT.
For acts committed before January 1, 1997, the previous version of CJ 16.140.1 contained in the 6th Edition bound volume should be used and not the version contained in the July 1997 Pocket Part.
The amended version of the statute should be applied to any pre-1997 offense, where the judgment is not yet final on appeal. (See PG VII(C)(27) re: retroactivity and abatement.)
