NEW ORLEANS -- The U.S. Attorney's Office says the sentencing for former St. Tammany Parish Coroner Dr. Peter Galvan has been pushed back two weeks because of wintry weather hitting the city.

The sentencing was scheduled for Jan. 29. The new date is Feb. 12.

Galvan pleaded guilty in October to corruption charges. Court documents say he used taxpayer money for meals and personal perks, and he collected over $100,000 in sick leave that he wasn't entitled to, among other allegations.

Galvan faces a maximum of five years in jail, a $250,000 fine and restitution of twice his gain or the victims' loss, whichever is greater.
