Dr. Peter Galvan pleads guilty

Galvan entered a guilty plea on a single federal corruption charge Wednesday afternoon.  Galvan said nothing leaving the courthouse.

Federal prosecutors were prepared to prove that he used taxpayer money for the St. Tammany Parish Coroner’s office to buy personal items like a generator and life raft for his personal boat as well as a GPS device.  Together, the items have a value of about $20,000.

Galvan’s sentencing is set for January 29 at 2:00 in the afternoon.  He could get up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
