A court hearing date has not yet been set for an Alabaster woman charged with stealing donations intended to benefit her special-needs son, according to court documents.


Roseanna 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.

Although Borelli originally was scheduled to appear in court before Shelby County Circuit Court Judge Dan Reeves for a status hearing on Nov. 26, her court appearance has been “continued generally until the next available pretrial docket,” according to court documents.

Court filings did not list a new appearance date for Borelli.

In addition to the three counts of theft, Borelli 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 has been released from the Shelby County Jail on bonds totaling $15,000.
