Hacked and punished by G!!

Hey guys i want your opinion on this issue.
Main site PR 3 completely white hat no tricks whatsoever. Its a legitimate business site.
It was hacked for a period of one year, porn links injected due to lack of attention from my part. Haven't had time to update the theme. I was notified by google that the site was hacked then immediately uploaded the most recent clean back up i had. Cleaned a 23 Gb folder full of garbage.
Resubmitted the site and everything is fine with G verified via webmaster tools no errors no messages.

Now the problem is its not being indexed by G and some sites are still alerting that its a malicious website. PR3 is gone and the site is probably in sand box. E-articles and McAfee indicate that links are malicious as well.

Have you ever had such experience before? Whats the best method you suggest to bring it back to where it was. Again the site is purely articles and most back links are natural. Niche is very reputable, since G recognizes it as a hacked domain then clearly indicates you to resubmit it once cleaned, why would take such measures?

    When you do site:domain in Google, does it show up?

      Yes, mixed results some authentic links and some non existing links associated with porn sites. Its been 3 months now.

    Sometimes it takes awhile, how long ago did you do the re-submit request?

    Yes I had the same results for one of my sites too. Infact, I could not remove the malicious content inserted so I had taken the help of the sitelock team from hostgator and then I could remove the links from my site.

    After you again resubmit your site to G, it takes time to get all the links out of their search. Just have patience, I think for my main page to get cleared it took around a week, wherein there was no mention of malicious content under my website url in G search results. Later it took around a month to get all those extra inserted links of my site displayed of my site when we insert site:domain.com in G.
    So just have patience, you have detected the hack and rectified it, now its the G bots to resolve it,

    Sorry, but legitimate business sites don't stay hacked for a year.

    It makes sense for Google to keep a site like that out of the index for awhile until it is sure that the same thing is not going to happen again.

      I have to agree with the above posters a year?

      Need to move on start over especially if its' been a year you won't salvage anything from the other site
