‘Charlie Brown’ TV voice actor gets nearly 5 years in prison for making criminal threat.

The man who as a child provided the voice for beloved “Peanuts” character Charlie Brown is headed to prison, despite a last-ditch effort to withdraw his guilty plea to charges of making criminal threats. When he entered his guilty pleas last month in San Diego Superior Court, he admitted sending threatening letters to a manager at a mobile home park in Oceanside where he had been living, saying he would harm the manager and his wife.

William Chidsey Jr., a retired Los Angeles Superior Court judge who was brought in to handle the case after San Diego judges recused themselves, sentenced the former actor to four years and eight months in prison. From age 9 to 13, Robbins was the voice of Charlie Brown in a series of 1960s animated classics, including “A Charlie Brown Christmas” and “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.”

She called Robbins a “broken person” and expressed some empathy for whatever hardships Robbins had gone through in his life to make him behave as he had.
