"Charlie Brown" actor warned, "Don't be a blockhead"

Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) - The man who was the original voice of Charlie Brown in "Peanuts" television specials has been sentenced to a year in jail for stalking a former girlfriend and threatening her plastic surgeon. But Peter Robbins was immediately released to a residential drug treatment center to complete his sentence. 

The 56-year-old Robbins has already been in jail for four months. Superior Court Judge Dwayne Morning said Wednesday that he could spend the next eight months in treatment, but if he violates his probation he could spend four years in prison. 

Borrowing a line from Charlie Brown's friend Lucy, the judge told Robbins, "Don't be a blockhead." 

Robbins also received five years' probation and was ordered to pay $15,000 in restitution to the plastic surgeon.
