Unfortunately if he stood before a judge and accepted the plea its difficult to change the now agreed upon situation. However it sounds as if there is a lot to this case and it will require more than a paragraph to explain. What i strongly urge you to do is contact a local attorney who specializes in criminal defense.

Depending on the circumstances, possible duress, underage (it sounds as if he was 13), lack of an adult or attorney there, his continued request to stop, the attorney may be able to make a motion to re-argue and possibly have the plea set aside.

Without all the facts and being I am not admitted in GA I cannot tell you exactly what if anything can happen but again it would be a good idea to speak to a local criminal attorney. Good luck
