A man who says he was abused by a local priest will identify himself at a press conference Tuesday.

That's according to a press release issued by his attorney.

The man is expected to talk about his experience and explain why he believes Michigan's child sex abuse laws need to change.

The Catholic Diocese of Lansing reached a $225,000 settlement with this man two years ago, though it says a board of review could not find evidence to prove his story that Monsignor John Slowey molested him in the 1950s.

Slowey has been dead for years.
