Felony convictions cannot be expunged in Illinois.
You may ask the Governor for a pardon, but those are rare and usually are sometimes successful when based on new evidence of innocence.

The only time a charge can be reduced is before you plead or are found guilty. It is probably too late to withdraw the plea and so the answer would be yes, it is virtually impossible at this time.
