The man who voiced beloved cartoon character Charlie Brown as a child pleaded guilty on Tuesday, Nov. 10, to making death threats toward a county sheriff.
Peter Robbins, now 59, admitted before a San Diego courtroom that he had tried to hire someone to kill Sheriff Wiliam Gore, and had threatened the manager of a mobile home park.
The troubled former child actor also told the judge that he has been diagnosed with bipolar and paranoid schizophrenic disorders, and that jail time would do no good, the Los Angeles Times reports.
“I’m mentally ill,” he said, according to the L.A. Times. “I’ve committed no crime.”
Robbins will face four years and eight months in prison for his crimes.
According to the L.A. Times, Robbins was arrested in Oceanside in September, where he resides with his dog, Snoopy.
This is not the first time that Robbins has had a run-in with the law, however. In 2013, he pleaded guilty to threatening an ex-girlfriend and her plastic surgeon, and was sentenced to probation, though he later violated the terms and had to serve four months in jail.
Aside from voicing several Peanuts TV specials in the 1960s, including A Charlie Brown Christmas and It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, Robbins also appeared on shows including My Three Sons and Rawhide as a child.
