It depends on HOW they amend it. If they reduce the charge - you're good. If they amend it upwards - not so good.

The word amend means to change. So a motion to amend indictment means a motion to change the indictment.

Not enough information is disclosed in the question. Has the arraignment already occurred? Has the Grand Jury handed down the indictment yet? Is this an additional indictment, or added charge?

If the Prosecution wishes to add, change, clarify or remove charges from an Indictment, they make a motion for Leave to Amend the Information (the wording may vary by state). Leave, in this case, means permission. The Information is the list of charges and specific details they're accusing someone of committing.

It means to propose a change to a Motion.

In general, no. You should write your own motion.

No, he can not; a judge must hear both accounts of the event before reaching a jurisdiction.Another View: Judges play no part in the indictment process. ONLY the Grand Jury can issue, or alter a true bill of indictment. The Grand Jury is a "creature" of the Prosecutor's Office, representing the Executive Branch of government. Judges are part of the Judicial Branch.

The word amend is a verb.

That is the correct spell of "amend" (modify).

Amended is the past tense of amend.

A motion is a formal verbal proposition offered to a legislative body, and can cover new business, old business and everything in between. A resolution, however, is a written motion that has been adopted, or accepted, by the body as a whole. An example of this would be a motion to amend an item on the federal budget, and the resolution that makes that amendment happen.
