Da Brat
is gonna pay twice for violently bottling a former NFL cheerleader inside an ATL nightclub back in 2007 -- after serving more than 3 years in prison for the crime ... the rapper now has to pay the victim $3.7 MILLION.

Shayla Stevens -- who used to cheer for the Atlanta Falcons -- sued Da Brat in 2009, while the rapper was serving her prison sentence after pleading guilty to aggravated assault.

The civil trial hit a stumbling block Wednesday when a juror in the case admitted he wasn't a U.S. citizen -- but the new jury quickly reached a verdict today.

The jury found Da Brat -- real name Shawntae Harris -- responsible for causing Stevens' permanent facial scarring, neurological impairment, and severe mental pain.

Da Brat is not worth that kind of coin. She'll just declare bankruptcy, and the cheerleader won't see a penny.
