Halle Berry's stalker has just been sentenced to serve 386 days behind bars.

Richard Franco struck a deal with prosecutors -- pleading no contest to felony stalking, in exchange for dropping a felony burglary charge.

As we previously reported, Franco was arrested outside Halle Berry's home last year -- when cops found him scaling the wall around her house, the third time he trespassed on her property in as many days.

Franco has already served 193 days in jail -- which means he only has another 193 left to go.

Franco was also sentenced to 5 years probation after he completes his sentence. He also has to complete a one-year psychological counseling program.

The judge also extended Halle's 3-year restraining order against Franco -- requiring him to stay 200 yards away from the actress for the next 10 YEARS.

TMZ has obtained Franco's most recent probation report, which details his criminal history all the way back to when he was just 15. According to the docs, Franco is affiliated with the "Stoner 13" street gang ... and goes by the moniker "Little Scrappy."

4:19 PM PT: The L.A. County District Attorney's Office just released a statement, claiming Franco will not serve any additional jail time, despite only completing half of his sentence. The D.A. didn't specify why Franco was released, but it's most likely a combination of good behavior and overcrowding in L.A. jails.
