PARIS, Sept. 8 (UPI) -- A Paris court has found British fashion designer John Galliano guilty of hate crimes for publicly uttering anti-Semitic and racist slurs, officials said.

People.com reported the 50-year-old celebrity stylist, who was fired from the Dior fashion house after his arrest in February, was fined $8,500 in the case Thursday, but won't have to pay it as long as he is not found guilty of any crime in France for five years.

He also was ordered to pay court costs and one symbolic euro each to the people he offended when he went on drunken tirades during two separate incidents in the same Paris cafe, People.com said.

Galliano sought treatment for addiction to sleeping pills, Valium and alcohol following his arrest.
