Whether you could have pled insanity went out the window when you pled guilty. Your issue now is whether you can withdraw your guilty plea based on a lack of understanding of what was occurring at the time of the plea. You need to privately consult with and hire appellate counsel immediately to address this issue, as these matters are typically very time sensitive. After private consultation and a full evaluation of your situation, your attorney can advise you regarding how to move forward.
This is not intended as individual legal advice and there is no attorney client relationship established by this answer. It is advisable that you seek individualized legal assistance. This is not a substitute for hiring an attorney.
Doesn't sound like an "isanity" plea is appropriate, but your mental state may be relevant to whether or not you reasonably knew or should have known the property was stolen when you took possession of it.
