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.)
