A quick definition of crime score:

Crime score: A number that shows how serious a crime is based on how much harm was done or how much damage was caused. This helps prosecutors treat similar cases fairly and prepare for cases that need more attention. It's like a grade for how bad a crime is.

A more thorough explanation:

Definition: A number given to a crime based on how serious it is. The score is determined by the amount of damage done to property or the harm caused to people. This helps prosecutors treat similar cases in a fair way and prepare for trials.

Example: If someone steals a candy bar from a store, their crime score would be low because the damage is minimal. But if someone breaks into a house and steals expensive jewelry, their crime score would be higher because the damage is greater.

Explanation: The example shows how the crime score is determined by the extent of the damage or harm caused. The more damage or harm, the higher the score. This helps prosecutors treat similar cases in a fair way and prepare for trials by knowing which cases need more attention.
