Dr. Diego Posada posted bond on Monday, but when he saw 9Wants to Know's cameras outside the jail, he did not want to leave. Several jail staffers and other released prisoners told 9NEWS as much when they came out.

The former Walmart eye doctor is facing a child pornography charge and child molestation allegations.

9Wants to Know wanted answers from Posada about claims made by two families that he sexually assaulted their daughters in his eye care clinic at the Commerce City Walmart.

His attorney says he's innocent of all the accusations.

Monday morning, a judge reduced Posada's bond from $500,000 to $50,000. Prosecutors objected to the move, saying Posada is a flight risk.

He didn't go anywhere for about 90 minutes on Monday until the Adams County Jail invited 9NEWS inside to talk to him. That's when Posada made a hasty exit without comment.

Posada was arrested in April after a flight back to the U.S. from his native Colombia where he went after local police began their investigation.
