Peter Robbins, who voiced Charlie Brown in many of the 1960s Peanuts classic TV specials, pleaded guilty to making criminal threats and stalking in incidents with his former girlfriend and her doctor.
As we reported back in January, Robbins, 56, was arrested when he tried to cross the border into Mexico. According to 10 News, the Oceanside, California resident could face up to three years in prison on the charges. He will be sentenced next month.
A month before trying to get out of the country, Robbins had allegedly threatened Dr. Lori Saltz, a doctor who performed breast-enhancement surgery on his ex-girlfriend, Shawna Kern, Deputy District Attorney Elizabeth McClutchey said.
According to People, Robbins was actually paying for the surgery until his relationship with Kern ended with a domestic abuse incident. Prosecutors say that he began placing threatening calls to Saltz’s office to try to get his money back. Saltz feared for her life and stayed at a hotel and hired an armed guard for her office.
Robbins played the voice of Charlie Brown when he was 9-years-old. His voice can be heard in A Boy Named Charlie Brown, It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and A Charlie Brown Christmas.
