Alabaster resident Roseanna Borelli, who has been charged with pocketing donations intended to benefit her special-needs son, is scheduled to appear at a status hearing at the Shelby County Courthouse on Nov. 26.


Borelli has been charged with three counts of theft after Alabaster police said she allegedly stole nearly $30,000 donated to help cover her special-needs son’s medical expenses.

She also has been charged with allegedly stealing about $6,400 intended to fund a special-needs playground at Pelham’s Linda Nolen Learning Center. Police previously accused Borelli of allegedly spending money raised for the playground on personal items such as restaurants, online dating services, hotels and clothing.

Borelli is scheduled to appear in front of Shelby County Circuit Judge Dan Reeves during the Nov. 26 status hearing.

Borelli has been released from the Shelby County Jail on a $15,000 bond.
