OMAHA, Neb. -- On Friday, a Papillion woman was sentenced to prison for two different firearm offenses from 2020.

Officials said 36-year-old Katherine Woitaszewski received 54 months' imprisonment for being a felon in possession of a firearm and being in possession of a stolen firearm. There is no parole in the federal system and Woitaszewski will serve a three-year term of supervised release after her prison release.

According to court documents, Woitaszewski was a front seat passenger of a truck that was stopped buy the Omaha Police Department on Oct. 28, 2020 and she had an outstanding warrant for her arrest. Woitaszewski reportedly informed the police that she had a pistol in her backpack that was in the truck. Police found the purple backpack on the front passenger floorboard and saw a Kahr CW380 .380 caliber pistol along with over 200 rounds of ammunition inside. The pistol was reported stolen on Sept. 18, 2020 in York County and Woitaszewski later admitted to knowing the pistol was stolen.

Authorities said a firearm and toolmark examiner with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives examined the pistol and determined that it was not made in Nebraska and would have had to have been brought into the state affected interstate commerce to be found in Nebraska on Oct. 28, 2020.

Officials said Woitaszewski had a prior felony conviction for delivery/intent to deliver a controlled substance in Pottawattamie County, IA from 2019 and was on probation at the time she was arrested for the firearm issue.

This case was investigated by the United States Marshals Service, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives, the Omaha Police Department, the Sarpy County Sheriff’s Office, and the York County Sheriff’s Office.
