I changed the previous owner's password and that fixed it. Now my question is do I have a legal recourse to go after the person that hacked my site?
That sounds like hell. Quick answer: In all probability, you do have legal recourse. The only question is, do you still have the edited posts and logs of that user, can you identify them IRL, and do you have the time to pursue it? Probably small claims court, but very difficult if they live very far from you.
