Questions about info revealed in a background report

I am looking at applicants criminal background - I see minor criminal activity... but I don't see any dates of the offense...  I am in Texas... Am I allowed to ask applicant for a timeline and description of past offense?

I am never straight forward like that. I usually will ask the applicant to verify with me that this criminal report is correct. Go over the information with them and provide them a copy. Then after that I will send them an acceptance or a denial with reasons why I accepted. Make sure to review the fair housing act when denying applicants.
Yes you are allowed to verify the details related to the crime. In my case the agents at Cloud Real Estate helped me a lot.
