The credit union serves employees of the Greater Baltimore Medical Center and Sheppard Pratt Hospital. Galloway started working there in 2000 and became CEO in 2002, according to county police.

Galloway has paid $90,000 in restitution related to the case, prosecutor Adam Lippe said. She still owes an additional $40,000, he said.

Sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 4. Under a plea agreement, the state plans to seek a five-year sentence, suspending all but one year. The first 30 days would be served in the county detention center and the remainder would be served on home detention.

Defense attorney Marshall Henslee declined to comment.

Galloway's husband, Baltimore County Police Sgt. Daniel Galloway, has also been charged in the case. The 18-year department veteran was suspended without pay because of the allegations.
