Question: in Present Perfect & Answer: in ........ ??

6 years ago

if someone ask me: "Have you ever been in jail?"

and I was in Jail for XXX days/years etc. , how do I have to answer when I'm at the moment of speaking not in jail ?

a) Yes, I have been in jail once for XXX days/years. -> (I think thats wrong because it's an finished action !? )
b) Yes, I was in prison for XXX years, days etc.

Sometimes it's confusing.

Thanks for help.
