Bobby Brown
has been sentenced to 55 days in jail following his most recent DUI arrest, TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story ... Brown was arrested in October after cops pulled the singer over for driving erratically, and smelled alcohol in his ride.

Bobby was charged with DUI and driving on a suspended license following the incident. (Brown's license had been suspended as a result of his previous DUI conviction in 2012. Bobby was also convicted of DUI in 1996.)

Bobby pled no contest to the charges today. He was sentenced to the jail time, plus 4 years probation. He was also ordered to complete an 18-month alcohol program. This is Bobby's third DUI conviction.

Bobby has to turn himself in to jail by March 20 -- and has been ordered to attend 3 AA meetings per week until then.

55 days for his 3rd DUI! Really. If this was you or me, it would be more than 50 days, your license would of been taken away. This is bull! The laws should be the same for everyone not a set for the rich, the poor and the illegals!

Wow, 55 days for his 3 DUI.. celebrity justice anyone?
A felony DWI (3rd or more) in the State of Texas carries from 2 to 10 years in state prison. Any felony can be enhanced with a finding that you committed the crime using a deadly weapon, which can bump the charge to a second degree felony with up to 20 years in prison. Many texas district attorneys have started routinely charging folks with a felony DWI with a deadly weapon enhancement (because people were operating a motor vehicle while doing so). Moreover, assuming the deadly weapon enhancement also applied, you could be enhanced again under Texas' Habitual Felony Offender law with a first degree felony (carrying up to 99 years in prison) because you have a prior felony conviction.

They should put Bobby and Conrad Murray in the same cell, so they could piss and moan each other to death.

He gets jail. Lohan gets rehab, for the millionth time. Guess he should have more freckles if he wants more lenient sentencing.

The man has been a stinking, falling down drunk for years (decades). Had him on a flight three years ago and he reeked of alcohol and disturbed everyone in first class the entire 4-hour flight constantly ringing his flight attendant button for alcohol, even though he was told over and over again that he would not be served. They had to threaten to land the plane and kick him off before he finally shut up and passed out. Unfortunately he seems to be so far off the charts of addiction that he will either kill someone else and end up in jail for the rest of his life, or end up dead soon. Pray for his daughter. Being raised by two extreme addicts her whole life, she has a very high chance of ending up going down the same path. She does have a chance, however, being so young, her path can deviate with lots and lots of help and intervention. For Bobby, however, his path will soon come to another tragic end.
