The verdict is in!
A Paris court found John Galliano guilty of “public insults based on origin, religious affiliation, race or ethnicity” on Thursday.
The designer was facing up to 6 months in jail, but because of his apologies to the victims the court gave him a fairly lenient sentence of a suspended $8,400 fine.
John isn’t required to pay the fine, but it will still be on his criminal record.
The court also ordered him to pay $23,200 in court fees and give each victim a “symbolic” Euro in damages.
Galliano wasn’t in court for the verdict, but his lawyer says he’s relieved.
