Disgraced fashion designer John Galliano was found guilty of making anti-Semitic comments by a French court, according to CNN. He was fined 6,000 euros, and one symbolic euro was awarded to each plaintiff, who claimed he insulted them in a Paris cafe during separate incidents in October and February. Though he could have faced six months in jail, Galliano was not sentenced to any prison time.

Galliano had been fired by Christian Dior after video surfaced showing him slurring anti-Semitic insults and praising Adolf Hitler.
