If you wish to change your mind and request a jury trial then you need to file a motion and assert that right as soon as possible. Understand that a jury probably will not be seated on your original date because of logistics. But you have an absolute right to a jury.

This response is general in nature and is not legal advice. No attorney client relationship is formed by it.
