Count

A count is each allegation or charge in a criminal information, indictment or complaint. For example, Randolph Hobson Guthrie III faced an 18-count Indictment in the first joint criminal intellectual property investigation by the United States and China. The Indictment alleged that Guthrie was the ringleader in a conspiracy to import more than 2,000 DVD's containing unauthorized copies of motion pictures.
