Brown's lawyer, Jill Craft, declined to give any details about the nature of the news conference.
The Louisiana Senate is set to meet next Monday for a hearing in which Senator Dan Claitor, a Republican from Baton Rouge, says he will call for Brown's expulsion from the Senate to due Brown's abuse against women.
Brown, a Democrat from Geismar, has pleaded no contest to two misdemeanor charges involving physical abuse against his wife and another woman during two separate incidents.
