Attorneys for Nicholas Prugo argued authorities made an implied deal for favorable treatment for his assistance in unraveling break-ins at homes of Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and other stars.
Deputy District Attorney Sarika Kim told a judge Wednesday that the motion was premature because no plea offer had been made.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Darrell Mavis agreed, saying any deal between Prugo and police was "very vague."
Prugo is charged with seven counts of felony residential burglary. Several were filed after he was initially arrested and started cooperating with police.
