Flamboyant fashion designer John Galliano was found guilty Thursday in a French court on charges of making anti-Semitic comments against at least three people in a Paris cafe. He has been fined 6,000 euros but has not been sentenced to prison time. One symbolic euro has been awarded to each plaintiff.

Galliano was fired by fashion giant Christian Dior in March after a video surfaced showing him praising Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler. He testified when the trial opened in June that drugs were to blame.
