If you want to pursue this, you will absolutely need to hire a lawyer. You can find qualified attorneys at our website, http://attorneypages.com
First, you will have to have some kind of fairly solid proof, about the friendship between the judge and the person who filed the complaint against you. Second, you are going to have to explain in a lot more detail why you testified under oath, that you did what you were charged with, since you must have done that to enter the guilty plea. Beyond that, you will need to get into the rest of the facts of this case.
If you are going to do it at all, you must do it very quickly.
