John Galliano Found Guilty of Bigotry Comments

World renown designer John Galliano has pleaded guilty to,

“Anti-Semitic insults at a Paris restaurant, has been given suspended fines totalling 6,000 euros (£5,250; $8,400). Galliano had been charged with “public insults based on origin, religious affiliation, race or ethnicity”. The offences carried a maximum sentence of six months in jail, but prosecutors did not ask for the designer to be sent to prison.”

Galliano also has to pay a symbolic euro in damages to his victims, five activist groups, as well as legal costs for the plaintiffS. Galliano has since apologized for his actions.

“A lawyer for Galliano said after the ruling: “Mr Galliano is relieved. Relieved that these eight months are behind him. He is looking forward to a future with understanding and forgiveness, hopefully, and to put all of this behind him.”

I hope he gets the help he needs so that he can get his life together.
