From the scenarios Al had Ziggy run, it never occurred to them that he might be there to prove her innocence (because all the records showed she was guilty). So if he'd leapt any earlier, they probably would have told him to do something completely different. If they did, I wonder what it would have been?

Also, with Sadie clearly not in her right mind, it makes me wonder why they would allow her testimony to be admitted into the record. Obviously it brings up enough reasonable doubt, and with Myrtle now willing to talk, she could have backed up everything Sadie said (at least about the fight), but it makes me wonder why she wasn't labelled "non-compos-mentos"?
I kept wondering why everybody was so scared . Of the town bully . Why no one stood up to him until the end . Was it because Sam was there ( having leapt into this guy. And proved she was innocent . I loved that scene when Al showed up and made Sam request to go into the Judges chamber - to talk and think things out . The funny things Al made Sam say . And I am still trying to pick my jaw up off the floor when it turned out to be Sadie . As you say , she was so fragile in her mind . It was a scary moment . I thought . Kind'a like a last minute turn left instead of right . BIG surprise !
