There is a possibility. Depending on what is actually in the file above and beyond what you have stated is extremely important to know. Also, the division assigned to the case can also make a difference in Pinellas county. Most violations go before the same judge except for Division N cases. As long as all the terms and conditions of the probation are satisfied then this should be a relative painless process. In some situations the courts will assess an additional fine to close out the file.
If the paperwork was not properly file for the violation of probation you could also be looking at a jurisdiction issue and the case would be over. It is rare but it does happen.
