Sadly, the former child actor, who suffered from bipolar disorder, has been troubled later in life.

In 2015, he was sentenced to five years in prison for making criminal threats against several people. 

He pleaded guilty for sending the media threatening letters offering money to kill San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore and sent threatening letter to a property manager of the mobile home park where he lived. 

According to some reports, he threatened residents and sent them letters and sketches. 

He received probation at first while attending an in-house program for drug treatment. However, he was taken to prison when he violated his probation. 

While in jail, the heriff made threats and offered $50,000 to him death.  

In 2019, the actor was officially released. 

The star, who also appeared on the Munsters, managed to turn his life around and began promoting getting ‘professional help’ for mental health issues and was treated for addictions to drugs, alcohol and sex. 

But, the actor said it was his mental health that got him transferred to a state mental hospital in Atascadero, California. 

After being released by the actor in 2019, he was required to quit drinking or taking drugs, and to attend anger management classes. In North County, he was allowed to go to a sober living facility and began to advocate for people with bipolar disorder to be treated seriously. 

I would advise anyone suffering from bipolar disorder to seriously consider it. It is possible to turn your life around within a few months, just like my own. It was a great experience that helped me get out of prison. He said that he was humbled, grateful, and more thankful to have had the opportunity to go through it.

‘I came out of prison and I’m a better person for it,’ Robbins told Fox 5 in 2019. Robbins stated that he is humbled, grateful, and more thankful for the opportunity to live through it. 

Robbins stated that he was in a “manic phase” when he bought a “motorhome, a mobile house, two German sports cars, and a Pitbull called Snoopy.” 

The actor was released from prison and his Charlie Brown tattoo, which is located on the right side of his right bicep, was touched up. He said that it represented him “refurbishing” his life. 

His friend Brian Billeck posted a tribute on Twitter honoring the actor, writing: ‘I spoke to him last back in mid Dec. He wanted people to watch “The Charlie Brown Christmas Special.” He said with everything going on – the world could do with a Little Bit of Charlie Brown & Linus’ message.’
