Before he was handed a badge and a gun as a police officer for Florida Atlantic University, Jimmy Dac Ho was no stranger to trouble in South Florida.
Fired from the Broward Sheriff's Office in 2004 after a violent fight with his wife, Ho spent two years trying to get another job as a police officer. He was rejected by at least seven departments because of his history at the Sheriff's Office before he landed at FAU in 2006.
Once there, he racked up complaints of excessive force, intimidation and sexual harassment. Many of his problems involved women: Records show he was reprimanded for sending inappropriate text messages and making lewd comments to female employees and students.Despite 14 written complaints, Ho was punished just once, after he forced a student who spit on a security camera to lick off the spit.
Ho's law enforcement career ended in 2011 after he killed escort Sheri Carter. Ho handcuffed her with his police-issue cuffs, shot her twice and left her to die in her Boynton Beach condo. A judge sentenced him to life in prison in May.FAU officials have declined discuss Ho's hiring or his tenure with the school police force. With the criminal trial over, the school now faces a wrongful death lawsuit from Sandi Cooper of Wellington, Sheri Carter's mother.
Cooper said the school should never have hired Ho.
"I'm trying to comprehend why FAU allowed this animal on the streets," she said. "I can't comprehend it."

FAU: (F)ind (A)nother (U)niversity
The people would have been better off, if the scum bag had known 50 ways to leave your lover instead.
That’s a horrible story. What a lunatic this man is. But still, he went from first class jerk to cold hearted killer, that’s quite a leap.
I feel for that woman’s mother. What a heartbreaking thing.
