Attorney Raymond Raya says Jonathan “The Unit” Manfre pleaded guilty Thursday to a disorderly persons offense and paid a $125 fine.

The 33-year-old Manalapan resident was charged with felony drug possession when he was arrested outside the Seaside Heights house on July 24, 2011. Police said they found the anesthetic ketamine on him.

Raya challenged the circumstances of the arrest, saying the  off-duty police officer who arrested him could not prove he had Manfre’s consent to search him.

Raya said Thursday that his client is relieved not to have a felony on his record.
