Fallen TV star Andrew O’Keefe has offered a modest apology for a recent court outburst, telling a judge he understands how difficult the job is.

At a trial on Thursday, O’Keefe admitted to disrespecting magistrate Daniel Reiss during a bail hearing at Sydney’s Central Local Court last week.

During the hearing, O’Keefe had accused the magistrate of having “no interest in justice.”

“I do want to apologize unconditionally,” O’Keefe told the court.

“My behavior last time was quite disrespectful to the court.

‘I come from a family that has experience in the administration of justice; my father was a judge, I know how hard it is.’

Magistrate Reiss said he accepted the apology and would take no further action, de-escalating a situation that O’Keefe had previously warned his behavior could be considered contempt of court.
