According to a humongous A to Z book on plants from 1999, Lantanas are classified as a group 9 plant when it comes to pruning.  This means that light pruning of the spent blooms should be done in late spring.  You already knew this though.  Severe pruning can be done also, but you won't get any blooms during the next growing season.  You have had winter damage already so you might want to sacrifice next years blooms for the safety of your plant.  Your call.  PS, it also said to prune back (at any time) any branch that ruins the symmetry of the Lantana.
Old lady down on the block who gardens like it is going out of style said that I can cut them back. So I did. Now, we will see if they come back in the spring.
