    Post "serve time"

    Hi dear teachers,
    I've just known that the meaning of this expression is:
    serve time
    to spend time in prison:
    He's serving time for drugs offences.
    But I wondred either this expression is common in spoken English or not?
    if not, please could you give me another word which can have the same use?
