— A Wake County mother has been charged after her child was severely injured in a possible assault, according to arrest warrants filed by the sheriff's office.

Tiffany Robitalle, 23, of 1300 Farm Road, Lot #13 in Raleigh, was charged with felony neglecting child abuse involving serious bodily injury.

The warrant states that her child had broken bones, fluid on the brain and healing fractures on a rib and leg. The injuries occurred in late October. The child's age and sex were not disclosed.

Robitalle was placed in the Wake County jail under a $100,000 secured bond. Her first court appearance was set for Friday morning.

If she meets bond, Robitalle is ordered to not have any contact with children, court records state.

State Department of Correction records show that Robitalle was convicted of violating a protective order and larceny in 2007. She served 1½ months in jail when her probation for those offenses was revoked in 2009.
