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

A man who was found guilty of the sexual assault and death of Lynette Daley on a remote NSW beach has been jailed for at least 14 years and three months.

A state coroner determined that Daley died of blood loss caused by blunt force genital tract trauma inflicted by Attwater, and both the coroner and police called for Attwater and Maris to be prosecuted.

Lynette Daley, 33, indigenous mother-of-seven.

Attwater: 19 years jail, with a non-parole period of 14 years and three months.

When they eventually went to trial in 2017, it took a jury just 32 minutes to find Attwater guilty of manslaughter and aggravated sexual assault and Maris guilty of aggravated sexual assault and hindering the discovery of evidence.

Maris: Nine years jail, with a non-parole period of six years and nine months.

"Some of the evidence that informed the earlier decisions not to proceed with the prosecution was different to the evidence that was before the jury", NSW Director of Public Prosecutions Lloyd Babb SC said in a statement on Friday.

In February 2016 the NSW attorney-general requested the DPP review the case.

Television pictures showed a herd of about 50 horses running freely on the track's infield, Jerkens said. Billy Koch of Little Red Feather Racing said Oddsmaker, an unraced 2-year-old, also died in the fire.

"The Director advises me that he has issued a direction to his office to ensure this never happens again", he said.

"There is a big lesson to be learnt here, the DPP has got to understand about Aboriginality, you can't sweep everything under the carpet", Mr Davis said.

It is hoped today's sentence will form some closure for the family of Ms Daley.

"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.

She said that Attwater had lied to police "to hide what he knew was his disregard or disinterest in her welfare".

Instead he lied, claiming she was "drinking, laughing, listening to music all the way up the beach" to the ocean the following morning, and that she walked in unassisted.

On a recorded triple-zero call he is heard saying: "What a good fucking Australia Day, fuck sake, fucking hell you bloody bitch".
