MIAMI -- A Miami priest suspended because of sexual abuse allegations is suing one of his accusers for defamation.

The Rev. Alvaro Guichard says his accuser made defamatory lies against him at a news conference two years ago. That's when the man announced he was suing the Archdiocese of Miami, which later settled.

The man in his lawsuit said that when he was a teenager in the 1980s, Guichard promised him a job and a car in exchange for sex.
