Double Jeopardy: I entered a guilty plea to a felony crime

Double Jeopardy:I entered a guilty plea to a felony crime approximately 5 years ago in the state of VA. I did not have to serve jail time but I was put on the Sex Of. Reg. and put on probation for 10 years. If I could prove that the prosecutor did not disclose valuable information at the time of the negotiations between my attorney and her, information that would've changed my plea, a very tall order I know, would the plea agreement just be vacated and they could try me before a jury or would that be double jeopardy. I want the whole case thrown out based on the possible misconduct (of course I would :-). What are you thoughts about whether I could still be charged for the same crime? Thanks.
