Bill Cosby prosecutor Kevin Steele has asked the judge to throw the book at the disgraced comic, and sentence him to five to 10 years in prison and a $25,000 fine for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, RadarOnline.com can exclusively report.

During closing arguments, Steele got "very emotional" an onlooker told Radar, and was "almost crying."

"This is about a person who put himself in a situation of being a mentor," Steele told the judge. "We know he had other intentions right from the beginning: What he saw in Andrea the first time he laid eyes on her, what his plan was."

"He used his fame. He doesn’t recognize that it’s wrong to drug somebody and sexually assault them."

He said Cosby has shown "no remorse" for his disgraceful behavior.

Steele also slammed the defense for begging the judge not to sentence the 81-year-old to any prison time due to his old age and blindness.

"They’re asking for a get-out-of-jail free card!" he huffed.

"Committing a drugging and sexual assault comes with a heavy price, and that price is your liberty."

Cosby has a notoriously nasty relationship with Steele, and even called him an "a**hole" in court after he was convicted in April.

Earlier today, Constand took the stand, and demanded "justice."  The former Temple University employee, now 45, was drugged and assaulted by Cosby at his Pennsylvania home in 2004.

Day one of Cosby's sentencing has ended for the day, but the shamed star will return to court to learn his fate tomorrow.
