    What is the meaning of the words?

    Hello Everyone,

    What is the meaning of the two underlined words in the following paragraph?


    Instead, after a three-month trial and only a day and a half of deliberations, the 36-year-old Padilla and his foreign-born co-defendants were convicted of conspiracy to murder, kidnap and maim people and two counts of providing material support to terrorists.


    Regards

    Sky

    deliberations = the jury's discussion of the evidence presented during the trial.

    two counts = two charges against the accused
