NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Former St. Tammany Parish Coroner Peter Galvan is scheduled to be released from prison Monday after serving just over two years on federal and state theft and corruption charges.

A state Department of Corrections spokesman tells NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune (http://bit.ly/1OScSiX ) that Galvan is serving his time at the David Wade Correctional Center in Homer.

He began his prison stint at the federal facility in Pollock in April 2014 following his conviction for using his well-financed agency for his own personal gain. In January, Galvan was released from federal prison and began serving a one-year sentence on state theft charges.

Galvan was eligible for good time release at the end of May. Prison officials said Friday he will remain on probation until Sept. 23, 2017.
