Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
First, you can report her to the FBI, since they handle unauthorized use of NCIC investigations. Second, you can file suit against her for invasion of privacy and seek damages from her for the improper access to your information without your consent.
