From the POV of Hermione Granger:
we see her and Harry as friends, some time in their teens.

we see her and Harry as friends, some time in their twenties.
CUT
we see her and Harry as friends, some time in their thirties or forties.
CUT
we see her, in her fifties or sixties, find Harry (likewise in his fifties or sixties) on trial. He sits, silent and stony-faced, in a chair in the center of a sub-basement dungeon. Hanging in the air over his head is a handwritten list of all the library books he's taken out in his life, with about two thirds of them crossed out because they were returned. With tears in her eyes, Hermione has to bear witness that she saw him take out one of those unreturned books in his teens. His sentence, by now, has grown to longer than his life expectancy.
