Saint Tammany Parish Coroner Peter Galvan has pleaded not guilty to conspiracy charges.
Galvan is accused of lavish spending in the coroner’s office at taxpayers’ expense. Documents also show Galvan used taxpayer money for meals, recreation, and other personal perks. He could face up to 5 years in jail.
The parish government says Galvan is expected to resign on Friday.
His trial is set for December 16.
