    Too many evers.

    'I can't remember him ever committing a crime in his life.'

    'I can't ever remember him committing a crime in his life.'

    Thanks very much. Ok I ommited one of the evers! So what about this one?

    I can't remember him to have ever commited a crime during his life.

    I can't remember him ever having committed a crime.
    I can't remember his ever having committed a crime.

    You don't need "during his life" as it would be difficult for him to have committed a crime while he wasn't alive!
