    ROCKFORD — A 38-year-old woman accused of kidnapping after she took her son to China against the wishes of the child’s father was recently cleared of criminal charges in the case.

    Stacy M. Boyce had been charged with child abduction in fall 2010 after she had taken the then 6-year-old boy to China Aug. 30, 2007. They were in China for three years where she taught English classes in Shanghai after the former South Beloit resident had separated from ex-husband Matthew Clayton, the boy’s father.

    Clayton won sole custody during Boyce’s absence and pushed for the return of the now 10-year-old boy, defense attorney Brian T. Morgan said.

    Winnebago County court records show Judge Gary Pumilia in late April found Boyce not guilty of kidnapping on a directed verdict. The ruling meant Pumilia found that even if the evidence Winnebago County prosecutors had presented at trial was true, it was not enough to convict Boyce of kidnapping.

    “Case law is clear when it comes to these types of cases,” Morgan said. “Boyce did not kidnap the child.”

    Morgan said there is an on-going civil case in which the boy’s parents continue to battle over custody and visitation.
