    There is no evidence of him

    I am wondering if my sentences sound natural. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    1.There is no evidence of him having committed any offence.
    2.There is no evidence of her having studied at university.

    Re: There is no evidence of him

    Many people (especially on this forum) will tell you that the first should be "... of his​ having committed any offence" but your version would be heard from many native speakers. The second sentence is fine.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
