Typically, you cannot withdraw a guilty plea absent extraordinary circumstances.

You can request it but the court is unlikely to grant it. (But the judge and the DA may be happy to see you give up your right to have your record cleared for a chance to spend time in jail.) You need to have a long face to face conversation with a lawyer first going over the pros and cons, If you did not enter a DEJ (delayed entry of judgement) you can force a trial by not going to the class that is a condition of the diversion.
