    Hi, please help me explain "in my defense" in this case:

    "I didn’t have a choice. It’s not like I seek out opportunities to spend time with Patch.” Well, except for last night at the Borderline. In my defense, I honestly hadn’t expected to see Patch. He was supposed to have the night off.

    Thanks in advance

    "In my defense" would mark as statement that is being used to defend one's actions from criticism.
