Sex offender moves in to rooming house atop Whistle Stop on Main St. Nanuet

ScalaA sexually violent offender has recently been released from state prison in Fishkill and placed at the rooming house above Whistle Stop pub, 150 Main St., Nanuet.

Hugh Scala, 47, was accused of having sexual contact with a 4-year-old female on Dec. 12, 2006 and arrested by the Stony Point PD. He was convicted of the charge of criminal sexual act in the first degree with a person under 11-years-old and sentenced to seven years in prison.

Scala is 5’9″ 168 lbs with brown hair and blue eyes. He is considered a Level 2 violent sex offender. His arrest record found at www.criminaljustice.ny.gov states that he knew his victim and that he did not use physical force or a weapon during his assault on her. Stony Point PD said that at the time of the assault Scala was dating the victim’s mother, who is since deceased.

Though he has been placed directly on top of a pub, two conditions of his release are that he does not frequent any place that sells primarily alcohol and does not drink any alcohol. Scala will be monitored by the NYS Department of Corrections and Community Supervision.

Community members have pointed out an elementary school also is less than one half mile away from the boarding house. Scala is not the only registered sex offender stored at the Main St. boarding house.

The conditions of his supervision are as follows:
