Two jurors who convicted former Qwest chief executive Joe Nacchio of illegal insider trading expressed displeasure with an appellate court's decision last week to allow Nacchio to remain free on bond during his appeal.

"I feel that so many people have been let down by (Wednesday's) decision," juror Anna Garduno said in an e-mail.  "So many former Qwest/U.S. West employees, as well as 18 jurors (12 jurors along with six alternates).  It seems our verdict is in question.  What a shame.  What a disappointment."

Juror Doug Stoneman said:  "I would not like to see the verdict overturned."
