    If he has one count, that is bad enough and there is no way that they will convict on all of them. Just charge with enough to make big habitual (3 for next case or 4 here). This stating "200 counts" is just sensationalization. It just means he is a pervert that kept a bunch of pictures. You do this with almost every story and the fact that this man had child pornography is enough to grab people to the story, adding the quantifier 200 could be in the story as "he had several thousand pictures and being charged with 200 of them!"
