The warning of the Lautenberg law is clear. Never plead guilty or no contest to ANY charge, not even a traffic infraction. Make the state prove your guilt despite a good defense.

What it really means is that today, if you're charged with some misdemeanor crime you cannot know if a conviction will wipe away one or more of your civil rights. What's more, no one can advise you that it might happen so you'll be totally screwed if such a law passes. I still believe Lautenberg, as applied, amounts to an ex post facto law.
