Lisa-Marie Bell, 21, of Askham Crescent, Penrith, and Sarah Louise George, 21, of Scotland Road, Penrith, both pleaded guilty at Carlisle Crown Court to acting “dishonestly and intending to make a gain for themselves” by while working at the Dorothy Perkins store.
The charge stated that between January 1 and July 31 2011 they had committed fraud and abused their position as employees by failing to “safeguard or not act against the financial interests” of the firm.
