You got off with a slap on the wrist, Charlie Brown
Judge cautions, "Don't be a blockhead!"
Peter Robbins, the former voice of Charlie Brown on numerous Peanuts television specials, was sentenced Wednesday to one year in jail. Robbins, who has been in jail since his arrest in January, will get off with time served and five years' probation. He was also ordered to undergo treatment for domestic violence and stalking.
The 56-year-old Oceanside resident is guilty of threatening his former girlfriend and the La Jolla plastic surgeon who did her boobs. Holding back tears Robbins expressed remorse, saying that he still loved the woman. He also offered an apology to her cosmetic exaggerator.
Superior Court Judge Dwayne Moring must have rehearsed the line for days: "Don't be a blockhead," he told Robbins, echoing the sentiment of Charlie Brown's frequent source of antagonization, Lucy Van Pelt. As BS reader John Schultz so eloquently put it, "No wonder he needs anger management. If people were calling you Charlie Brown into your adulthood and even the judge references it while you're going to jail, you'd lose your shit too."
He ordered Robbins to pay the plastic surgeon $15,082 in restitution and that he steer clear of his ex for 10 years.The slightest violation of the terms of his parole could send Robbins to the joint for almost four years.
