Apostrophe makes grammatically incorrect comeback

The Metro newspaper today tried to make up for its double apostrophe omission last Friday. In its offline article about the despicable Connor family from Brooklands, Manchester, it reported that "Natalie [Connor] faces 11 years’ in prison for manslaughter."

Maybe the apostrophe is making a comeback, in a grammatically incorrect way.

Meanwhile, I enjoyed the "MILF not pictured" caption for the picture in this article. Not sure what sort of traffic that will drive to my tangential ramblings.
