If he plead guilty, his case is resolved and he needs to fulfill the sentence imposed by the court. If he knowing, voluntarily and intelligently resolved his case, even if it was for the sole purpose of being released from jail, there is nothing that can be done. However, if he did not know what he was doing or was mislead by the Judge, he could file a motion to vacate his plea and fight this charge.
