Before Allegedly Shooting Escort, Jimmy Dac Ho Had Backpage Run-in With Fraudsters

Update 2/4: Carter died in the hospital on Friday morning.

Jimmy Dac Ho lived a troubled life with a gun on his belt, first as a Lauderhill police officer and, until yesterday afternoon, as a member of the Florida Atlantic University police force. From 2002 to 2004, he worked for the Broward Sheriff's Office but was fired after being arrested on a disorderly conduct misdemeanor. As a Lauderhill officer in 1995, Ho was involved in a car crash that killed a 74-year-old man, while pursuing a car without using lights or sirens.

On Monday afternoon, Ho visited Sheri Carter, or "Stephanie," an in-call escort he had contacted through her listing on Backpage.com (which is owned by New Times' parent, Village Voice Media). During a dispute that he says was about money, he allegedly shot her through the abdomen and in the neck, paralyzing her from the waist down. The University Press, the Post, and the Sun-Sentinel have covered the incident.

This wasn't Ho's first run-in with the law through online classifieds -- back in 2009,

he visited a Bank of America branch in Boyton Beach attempting to cash a check for $3,200. The teller contacted the account owner, a man named Paul Pickle.

Pickle had no idea the check had been written and had never met Ho. It turned out that Ho had responded to an ad for a personal driver on Backpage and was sent the check to cash via FedEx, supposedly as a down payment for the car he would drive. The man behind the fraudulent post identified himself on the phone as "Morgan." According to an incident report, "None of the involved parties, Pickle, Bank of America, or Ho lost any money due to this incident."

Carter posted frequent ads for her escort services to Craigslist and then, after that site banned adult-services ads last September, on Backpage. Her ads advertise "a quiet, clean and discreet incall location" and provide multiple photos of her. Escort review websites indicate that she operated independently and answered her own phone. As "Stephanie," Carter listed her age as 26 rather than 29.

She met most of her customers at her condominium in the Marina Village development in Boynton Beach.

Ho resigned from his position with FAU police yesterday afternoon, indicating in his resignation letter that the move was for "personal" reasons. Below, see the probable-cause affidavit for the recent incident, including Ho's voluntary confession to police.

this is just another example of a dirty cop who has a checkered past. i knew this girl personally and she never was a trouble maker. this girl worked out of her home not a fly by night motel ripping guys off. she was an easy target for this poor excuse of a human being. may he rot in hell as soon as he gets there!

Every time I read these kinds of posts, I’m reminded of the things I want users to know about how to stay safe on Geebo and other classifieds sites. Here are my “rules”: Buy and sell with people you can meet locally, in person. Don’t put your address in your ad. Meet in a public place. Take a buddy with you. Or carry a cell phone. (If you feel unsafe, you can call a friend and stay on the line.) Never give out private info like account numbers or PayPal login. If an offer sounds too good to be true, it is. Walk away! Use only sites where ads are reviewed before they are posted. Do not rely on a flagging or rating system that leaves users vulnerable in the mean time. Use sites without adult ads. These ads can harbor human trafficking activities that hurt people and open the door to other crime. If you’re unsure, do your own research. Type the site name into Google News or Yahoo News. Are the results full of news stories about crime? Then stay away. No news is good news!

To the sin pays a price idiot- if your point is she deserved it for what she was doing then you are a true piece of shit. Maybe something terrible will happen to you soon and you can wonder what sin of your own brought it on

Such a shame.Not the Jimmy Ho that I once knew.He was once a wonderful man, close to God, filled with joy and allways laughing. A good partner and close friend.I will miss the true Jimmy Ho.May God bless the family of this poor young woman who's life took such a sharp turn and will now be suffering for so long.
