Designer Galliano guilty of hate crime

Designer Galliano spared jail termJohn Galliano's drunken anti-Semitic ravings cost him his job at Paris luxury house Christian Dior and gave him a criminal record but won't land him in jail, a Paris court ruled Thursday, according to The Associated Press. The court found Galliano guilty on two counts of "public insults based on origin, religious affiliation, race or ethnicity." The three-magistrate panel showed leniency, sentencing the legendary designer to an $8,400 suspended fine, which means it goes on Galliano's criminal record but he does not have to pay it. The court did not give him any prison time.
