Thank you
What you're describing is a violation of Florida law. Specifically, Fl statue 815.06 Offenses against users of computers, computer systems, computer networks, and electronic devices provides, in part,
A person commits an offense against users of computers, computer systems, computer networks, or electronic devices if he or she willfully, knowingly, and without authorization:
Accesses or causes to be accessed any computer,, computer network, or electronic device with knowledge that such access is unauthorized;
So his access of your iCloud account, without your permission, violates this law. You can contact local police and request they prosecute this criminal misconduct.
Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.

What if the person he sent it to sends it to my work would they both be committing a crime?
Lawyer: P. Simmons, Attorney replied 3 years ago
If the person he sent the information to was aware the information was hacked from you, then they could also be charged

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
