Plea Agreement

Can a plea agreement be changed by the prosecutor after all parties involved have signed the agreement? The amount of restitution in the agreement which was signed and submitted was $1,100. However, the alleged victim submitted more bills taking the amount to $11,000. Needless to say the judge and defendant's attorney would not allow the restitution to be paid with a discrepancy over 100% until all parties were in agreement. What is the point of a plea agreement if changes or charges can be added? This is for a battery Class A misdemeanor in Indiana.

Thank you.
