The Parisian court that heard the case against former Dior creative director, John Galliano, for his anti-Semitic slurs caught on tape last December, entered a guilty ruling today. In case you don't recall, the designer went on a drunken rant at a Paris cafe, which was caught on tape and included Galliano saying: "I love Hitler" and “People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be f****** gassed,” among other anti-Semitic comments.
The designer has since undergone treatment for addiction at the Meadows Rehabilitation facility in Arizona for several months. As a result of the court's ruling, the designer will not serve jail time but is facing a potential fine of €4,000 if racks up any future criminal charges. Galliano's potential punishment was set to be a maximum of six months in jail plus a €22,500 fine. At trial in June, Plaintiff, Geraldine Bloch, allegedly sought a guilty sentence with no jail time and a €10,000 fine.
