I saw a documentary about prison life in the U.S. yesterday and there was one scene I was a little bit worried about.
The interviewer talked to a woman who had escaped from prison and was than more than 30 years on the run.
He litterally said to her: "I never heard a story of someone who has been on the run for 35 years."
Why did he use Present Perfect instead of Simple Past ? I mean he talked about a specific time (35years). And the woman has already been in jail for many years when the interview was shot.
