You are subject to PA for the offense so you may want to ask this question of a PA lawyer. If it were the reverse I can tell you that Florida can permit you to be supervised in another state or in some cases report by mail depending on the severity of the offense.

A Pennsylvania lawyer will best be able to answer the question however transferring probation to Florida may be possible.

Good luck,

Pennsylvania laws and local rules of the actual county in which you were arrested would govern whether you are able to get probation and whether that probation could be transferred.
