Never Say Never…
Unfortunately, it’s difficult if not impossible to go back two years and convert an adjudication of guilt to a withhold of adjudication. The general rules that apply to these matters allow you to withdraw your plea under certain circumstances within thirty (30) days from the date of the entry of your plea and sixty (60) days from the date of your sentencing to ask the court to modify it. Going back two years later is not likely to be well received. That said, I have seen it done where the court is willing to look the other way as it relates to the timing of the motion due to an unusual circumstance, so I’ve learned to never say never. It may be worth talking with a lawyer in the county where your case was addressed to see if they have any recommendations.
