    haven't been here for 3 years

    A suspect is now being imprisoned. As the door of the jail is opened and he is led behind the bars, he said to the officer:

    "I haven't been here for three years."

    Which of the following would the officer most probably think he is saying?
    1. He is jailed for the first time in three years.
    2. He has been in jail but didn't stay for as long as three years.
