HOMER, La. (AP) - Former St. Tammany Parish Coroner Peter Galvan left has been released from prison.

The New Orleans Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1RGGUpL ) Galvan was released early Monday from David Wade Correctional Center in Homer.

Natalie LaBorde, a state Department of Corrections spokeswoman, said Galvan was greeted by his wife and daughter.

Galvan was transferred to state custody in January from the federal correctional center in Oakdale after completing a federal prison sentence handed down after his guilty plea in October 2013 on conspiracy charges. A separate state prison sentence kept him locked up at the state facility for a few months longer.

Galvan was accused of - and later pleaded guilty to - using public money to buy items for his boat and plane, as well as lavish dinners for himself and staff.
