Hello. In Minnesota, a please agreement may be withdrawn with the Court's persmission. There are many requirements and a great deal of ongoing case law with regard to this legal issue. Please confer with an attorney who will assist and advise you: Some attorneys are available seven days for emergency legal needs. Many attorneys will confer initially at no charge. Then, if legal work is performed, some attorneys will provide a reduced fee for financial hardship. Some attorneys may also assist you in limited scope manner to conserve legal costs. All the best.

Sure! You have to show that your plea wasn't knowingly, voluntary and intelligent--but I have certainly withdrawn pleas before.
