Generally you can but only with the permission of the court or probation (and your probation officer).  But the terms of your probation will really govern.  You are going to have to transfer your probation to the new state and you should do all the inquiring and peg work on that to facilitate same if you are serious.  Your PO and the Court will not do it for you.
