“Good Grief!” Peter Robbins, a 56-year-old actor who lent his voice to the beloved Charlie Brown character from TV’s “Peanuts” pleaded not guilty on Jan. 23 in a Calif. Superior Court to two counts of stalking his former girlfriend and her plastic surgeon, and also pleaded not guilty to 10 counts of making criminal threats.
The plastic surgeon provided breast enhancement surgery for the former girlfriend for which Robbins paid while the couple was still together.
According to prosecutors in the case, after the relationship ended, Robbins relentlessly telephoned and threatened the former girlfriend saying that he “would kill her and her son if she did not give back his dog and car,” according to Yahoo! News.
Robbins reportedly made 37 calls to his former girlfriend over a 24-hour period.
Prosecutors also said that Robbins stalked and threatened the former girlfriend’s plastic surgeon. Out of fear for her life, the plastic surgeon felt forced to move into a hotel, and to hire an armed guard to stand guard outside of her clinic.
The voice actor wanted a refund from the plastic surgeon for his former girlfriend’s breast enhancement surgery.
A prosecutor in the case against Robbins, Deputy District Attorney Elizabeth McClutchey, alleged that on Dec. 31, 2012, Robbins confronted the former girlfriend in a hotel room, and while beating his dog said “he would not stop hurting the animal and would kill her if she did not get a refund for the surgery.”
McClutchey said he then grabbed his ex-girlfriend by the neck and shoved her against the door before fleeing.
Robbins had also made a gun purchase during that time. Although he never took possession of the weapon, he had been practicing at a shooting range.
Attorney for the defense, Marc S. Kohnen, said that "Mr. Robbins is an eccentric individual."
"He's not a threat to society."
If convicted, Peter Robbins would face a maximum sentence of up to nine years behind bars.
