    Answered . Penal Code 1192.7(c) lists offenses classified as serious felonies. All of those crimes, and the statutorily-defined violent felonies in Penal Code 667.5(c), are "strikes" under the Three Strikes law.

    There are 42 subsections under 1192.7(c), but they have numbers, not letters. Are you sure it isn't something like 1192.7(c)(2)?
