PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (AP) – A Wood County judge has accepted a plea deal involving two women accused of embezzling over $2,000 from the Girl Scouts.

A judge agreed Monday to dismiss embezzlement charges against Mary Farnsworth and Denise Davis if they both stay out of trouble for the next six months and pay back about $2,400.

Davis and Farnsworth are accused of using the money that girl scouts in the county area had made from cookie and yard sales to take their daughters and one of their friends to Sea World in 2011.

Another Girl Scouts employee, Mari Jo Tedesco, went to police about the missing money.

CEO of the Girls Scouts of the Black Diamond Council Beth Casey spoke at Monday’s hearing, insisting that no crime had occurred.
