Ik, here "count" means "charge" (individual crime).
The more complex the basic crime is, the more counts. Let's say that two guys rob a gas station. Chances are they each could be charged with one count of robbery per victim (six victims? six counts!), one charge of displaying a deadly weapon, one count of burglary (because they entered the gas station with the intent to commit a crme), etc. (To complicate matters, there are also "enhancements", things that make the crime more serious: multiple victims, prior felony convictions, etc.)
