Upshur took part in at least five residential burglaries and one home-invasion robbery between July and September 2012 in Lower Makefield, Middletown and Upper Makefield Townships, Pa., authorities said.
Upshur also took part in a Toms River home invasion in October 2012, authorities said.
Upshur, who pleaded guilty on Nov. 29, 2016, told the court he joined the group, allegedly led by his step-father, because he needed money for bills, medical expenses and child support.
He was also ordered to pay $84,000 in restitution to the five Bucks County victims.
