Default changing plea

I pleaded guilty to urinating in a public area.
It was late after the bar near campus where i was stopped by the police.

I was fined over 200 bucks.

But I want to change that plea now, is that legally possible in any way?

You'd have to petition the court to overturn the conviction. You'd have to have good grounds to be successful. Not liking the outcome isn't one.

Besides, if you are successful it only means you go to trial. If the officer witnessed you peeing then you'll get convicted anyway.

Law allows defendants to withdraw their guilty pleas under a variety of circumstances. On application of the defendant, usually, at any time before judgment or within six months after an order granting probation is made if entry of judgment is suspended, the court may, and in case of a defendant who appeared without counsel at the time of the plea the court shall, for a good cause shown, permit the plea of guilty to be withdrawn and a plea of not guilty substituted.

You can't make these statements because we don't know what STATE the OP is talking about.
