Never Misses A Shot was indicted by a federal grand jury on April 4, 2012, for making a false statement.

On October 1, 2011, Michael Never Misses A Shot was an inmate in the Codington County Jail. Aware of the federal investigation into the disappearance of AJ Lufkins, in the Sisseton area, Never Misses A Shot placed a call to the FBI. Never Misses A Shot told an FBI Agent that two individuals had confessed to killing AJ Lufkins and disposing of his body. He specifically told the agent the two individuals told him that they had beaten and killed AJ Lufkins. Never Misses A Shot knew that these statements were all false. Never Misses A Shot later admitted that he had lied in an attempt to avert attention from another person the FBI Agent had recently interviewed. He pled guilty to the charge on June 4, 2012.

This case was investigated by the FBI. Assistant US Attorney Dennis R. Holmes prosecuted the case. Never Misses A Shot was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshal.
