It is still a crime. If she had reported the leak without downloading the data that may have been different. Maybe she would have been a Whistleblower. Now she is going to be a felon.
Assuming she is legally sane, I'm sure she knew that. Except that it IS mystifying why she talked about doing it in public. Oh well. Her life, and she's welcome to it.

I wish she would have made my car note balance show as $0 while she was in there. Why can't the hackers ever do anything useful like wipe out our balances?

All it took was a misconfigured firewall. I, myself, while not even attempting to hack into anything, have been able to access others' personal data on website portals that should have been behind a correctly configured firewall.

Internet Security is lax in FAR too many corporations and government agencies/entities. That's why we're seeing the "data ransom" cases, even affecting public schools and government agencies including court systems.

She looks like a woman to me, like one that does too much running.
He/she looks like a man trying to look like a woman. If you read about him/her, he/she is crazy. Go ahead and call me a bigot, I don't care.

It is a male, not female.

No one said women are not capable of hacking, but, just how many women have been involved in the top 20 largest hacks?

I hope this doesn't get recorded as a female crime, it messes with statistics to record crimes according to self-identified gender rather than sex.

The one that got pardoned by Obama, entered the stats as a man and then became a woman, so how will that be counted?
