English term or phrase: crime of `attempt'
Hello

This text was translated from Chinese and I am supposed to translate it into German. Is there anyone who could clarify what this "crime of 'attempt'" is about?

Here is the sentence:

An important part of the Shanghai Changning District Court ruling was that the Court found the defendant guilty of the crime of `attempt'
(based in large part on the amount of inventory of counterfeit products in the defendant's possession).

Could that just mean an "attempted crime"?

Thanks!
