Lynette Daley's family including stepfather Gordon Davis outside Coffs Harbour Court for the sentencing of Paul Maris and Adrian Attwater

Her former partner Adrian Attwater, 43, who was found guilty of manslaughter and aggravated sexual assault, has been sentenced to 19 years in prison, with a non parole period of 14 years, three months.

Paul Maris was handed a nine year sentence. "We're all walking around and smiling and crying".

Ms Daley, 33, died after a violent sex act with her boyfriend Adrian Attwater and his friend, Paul Maris, on a drunken 2011 Australia Day camping trip to Ten Mile Beach near Iluka.

Eventually - hours later, and after Daley had lost two litres of blood - Maris called an ambulance, but she died by the time it arrived. But in March 2012 the director of public prosecutions declined to continue with the prosecution. But Daley's family has always believed it came down to racism.

Justice Fullerton said she had no doubt that Attwater deliberately lied to police to hide the fact he was responsible for Daley's death.

As Lynette Daley's family marks the end of a seven-year fight for justice, the NSW director of public prosecutions has publicly apologised to them that it took so long.

"The delay in the prosecution of the offenders has not only operated unfairly on them but it has also operated to the direct detriment of the family of the deceased and has had the potential to undermine public confidence in the administration of justice generally", Fullerton wrote.

"The question of whether there are reasonable prospects of conviction is a predictive exercise and one about which reasonable minds can differ".

"Nonetheless, I sincerely regret my office's involvement in the delay". The country has struggled for years to address disparities in the justice system's treatment of Aboriginal people, who make up around 3 percent of Australia's population of 24 million people and suffer from high rates of poverty, imprisonment, unemployment and poor health.

Attwater "did unlawfully kill" Ms Daley by inflicting horrific injuries during the sex act and failing to get medical help before she bled to death, the judge said. But they denied responsibility for her death, saying she'd been a willing participant in what they dubbed "wild sex" inside of Maris' truck.
