In a news release, Bridget G. Brennan, the special narcotics prosecutor for the New York City, described Scala and a fellow Staten Island resident, Joseph Zaffuto, as the leaders of the oxycodone pills operation. (See organizational chart below and here.) A third defendant, Nancy Wilkins, described as the "linchpin of the scheme" worked as an office manager for a Manhattan orthopedic surgeon.
