Yes. I know of 8 people who went to prison, and one of them will never get out.

by

Wow! What crimes did he commit?

by

He murdered someone, and since he's been incarcerated, he's murdered another individual.

by

How long have he been behind bars?

by

About 16 years now. He was 18 at the time of the first offense.

by

Is he still alive?

by

Yeah, he's alive.

Before what?

by

Sorry, the question was supposed to be 'Do you know anyone who have been behind bars'.

by

No, I don't.  The question would have been fine had you not added the word "before" at the end.  In your sentence, the use of "been" is the past tense, so "before" is not necessary.

Thanks for the information. I haven't bothered about tenses for about 50 years or so. Nice memory of what I learnt in school back in the 1960s

No I didn´t know anyone who did that.

Me too. But I had a friend who nearly went to prison for smoking in a gas station.

A couple.  I visited one of them in prison during one of his early stints.  He's out now, but I haven't spoken to him in years.
