  • 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 he was immediately released to a residential drug treatment center to complete his sentence.

    Peter Robbins has already been in jail for four months. Superior Court Judge Dwayne Morning said Wednesday that the 56-year-old 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.
