and gave him a suspended sentence of €6,000 ($8,400) in fines.

The Paris court found him guilty of "public insults based on origin, religious affiliation, race or ethnicity" stemming from two separate incidents at a Paris bar.
The accusations cost Galliano his job
at the luxury house and roiled the fashion world.
said he had been under the influence of alcohol and prescription drugs and couldn't recall the incidents in question.
