John Galliano, found guilty of racist taunts, escapes with paltry finemain
Three Paris judges agreed that he had abused people in several incidents with antisemitic taunts.
Galliano, saying he was drunk and drugged, had no recollection.
The judges ruled he needed treatment more than censure. They fined him a piffling six thousand Euros, about half of the prosecution’s demand – much of it, for some reason, suspended.
Galliano did not bother to turn up for sentencing. The only apology he offered was ‘for the sadness this whole affair has caused.’
To himself mostly, is what it sounds like. He has finished drug rehab and is ready for career relaunch.
Justice done, or dodged?
