I need to know if i can change my guilty plea to not guilty before sentencing and hire a new attorney.

The previous answer is quite correct. You must move on this immediately. Once you are sentenced the process of withdrawing your guilty plea becomes much more difficult. It is not necessarily easy now, requiring a showing of "good cause," but will require a showing of "manifest injustice" after sentencing. "Manifest injustice" is a very hard standard to meet. You should contact someone in Johnson County as soon as possible to inquire about withdrawing your guilty plea.
