Designer John Galliano will go on trial in Paris on June 22 for allegedly abusing three people with anti-Semitic and racist slurs in February.
The trial is likely to last a day and if found guilty of making anti-Semitic remarks Galliano could spend up to six months in prison and have to pay a €22,500 (£19,000) fine.
John Galliano was sacked from Christian Dior in March after he made anti-Semitic remarks at a café in February. A video clip later surfaced of Galliano purporting to show him in a racist rant. Galliano was also sacked from his eponymous label in April with the design reigns handed back to the design team at the label.
Galliano has since apologised for his actions, at the same time as denying the claims made against him. He has vowed to fight the allegations and has spent time in rehab.
Earlier this month it was announced that Galliano fired Stephane Zerbib, the lawyer he had hired to fight his case.
