A Charlie Brown Prison? Peter Robbins is going to jail! The former child actor who voiced the legendary Charlie Brown in the famously classic Peanuts specials was sentenced to 4 years and 8 months in prison.
The 59-year-old actor pleaded guilty to charges of making several criminal threats and even hiring someone to kill a man.
Robbins hired someone to kill Sheriff William Gore (with whom he had a problem with), while he also threatened a manager of a mobile home park. He had been previously diagnosed with bipolar disorder and paranoid schizophrenic disorder.
After telling the judge his story, he said that jail time “wouldn’t help him.” The According to the Peanuts star, he hadn’t committed any crime since he’s mentally ill.
However, this is not the first time that the actor got in trouble with the law. Back in 2013, he pleaded guilty to threatening his ex-girlfriend and her plastic surgeon. He was sentenced to probation, which he violated, and thus ended in jail for 4 months.
Peter Robbins voiced the legendary Charlie Brown in several Peanuts specials back in the 1960’s, including A Charlie Brown Christmas.
