Yes, it is possible to withdraw a plea of guilty or no contest. Most states have a time limit (eg 60 days) within which you must file a motion to withdraw a plea. The motion is filed with the court that you entered your plea in front of. You need to allege certain grounds such as the court lacked jurisdiction or that you were coerced into entering a plea. Good Luck.
